Children’s book illustrated by Lindsey E. Ayres, telling the magical story of the Savior’s birth.
The magical story of the Savior’s birth comes alive once again through the eyes of the animal creatures that were there — the donkey, cow, dove, sheep, camels and even the rooster.
Young readers will appreciate the word repetition, and children of all ages will bounce along with the rhyme scheme.
The original illustrations will endear you to this new holiday classic. That first Christmas wasn’t without the animals, don’t let yours be either!
