thrift store books

a new very sweet thrift store opened up and bryson and i have had a lot of fun shopping there. we recently picked up quite a bunch of books and i had to get this one...copyright 1982...the books i grew up with...

what? mary could totally have had red hair and blue almond shaped eyes...and Jesus totally could have been a blond hair blue eyed jewish baby. what? you think the illustrator Sheilah Beckett would not depict the Nativity accurately? surely one would have to be a historian in order to become a children's book illustrator!
