On the very first Christmas morning, the animals of Bethlehem each approach the manger to welcome Baby Jesus. In lovely little poems, the sheep express their humble joy to find a child "snuggled in [their] hay"; the horse is so moved that he is tongue-tied; the cow offers "a lullaby of moo"; the wren donates feathers to softly cradle the "tiny blessed head"; the llama hopes his wool will be made into warm blankets for the little savior; the littlest goat makes the baby laugh with his joyful dance; and so on. The illustrations that accompany each enchanting poem are rich and beautiful. What a special Nativity book to share with the whole family. For ages 4 to 8. (AH)
