Advent of Christmas books: Light the lamps

Light the lamps by Margaret Wild & Dee Huxley (Margaret Hamilton Books, 1994).
A post-Christmas tale of the infant Jesus.
Set in Israel, a young girl plays with her neighbour's baby, and worries for her beloved stepmother, who cannot have children. The girl hopes that her stepmother will find comfort in this special baby.
A beautiful story, with great illustrations.
