I was really happy to find this! My children had it when they were small.. I had to have it for My g

I was so Happy to find this book! I loved reading it to my children, and basically could remember the words from reading it so much! My daughter is an amimal lover from way back. Now a grown woman, and a vet tech, with a 6 year old daughter of her own, she got the pleasure of passing this story on. they read it at bed time, just like we used too. the art work is different, but the story rings true. I is just wonderful!!!!!

A Classic Story for the Young!!!

What a wonderful "throwback" to another era, with this Golden book which highlights some of the great artwork and poetry to celebrate Christmas. The story focuses on the many different kinds of animals who were present when little baby Jesus was born, such as chickens, four brown horses, five gray donkeys, six spotted calves, and...I think you get the point. It teaches the basics and provides great inspiration and truth for the children on one of the most sacred days of the year. Read it and your eyes will probably begin to well with tears. The picture of the eight nestling kittens is truly precious, as well as the eleven puppies who listen well. A marvelous collection for any library!!!

A beautiful classic

This book was one of my favorites as a little girl. Now, as a grown-up, I'm overjoyed to have found it again. Gale Wiersum takes the familiar counting-up-to-twelve verse form and from it weaves a sweet poem, recounting what the animals say to each other on Christmas Eve, "after all the people leave." Each group of creatures offers a bit of the Christmas story to their fellows. The illustrations are soft and magical. Give this one to a child who likes poetry, or read it aloud during the Christmas season (I've even seen it recommended as a resource for Sunday schools). You'll like it, too.
