Reviews:There are many Christmas stories and poems to remind us that true Christmas spirit is in the heart, not in what can be bought. But like the best Christmas stories, Ms. Hernandez spells what love is in action: kind words and deeds from transformed hearts. –Carol Mills, retired music school teacher

O Holy Night is a heartfelt effort, full of Christ and not Claus, a delightful aid for remembering the reason for the season. –Steve Barancik, Best Children’s Books

O Holy Night, written by Anna Marie Hernandez and illustrated by Julie Freeman, is a unique, inspirational, and engaging book for children. Based on the familiar musical selection entitled “O Holy Night,” the storyline will bring the birth of Jesus alive in the eyes of young readers, giving them a better understanding of the word “miracle.” O Holy Night is a delightful book that is well written and age-appropriate for its intended readers. The book is a perfect Christmas gift—one that will be enjoyed all year long. –Bettie Corbin Tucker, Independent Professional Book Reviewers
