The Friendly Animals: A Christmas Story (Hardcover)
"This appealing Christmas book features the verses of a folk song, written in medieval France, in which the animals in and around the stable in Bethlehem take turns telling their parts of the nativity story.... A beautiful picture book to share with young children at Christmas."--Booklist
A gentle retelling of the first Christmas through the perspective of the animals in the barn who offered their own gifts to the baby Jesus.
The Friendly Animals: A Christmas Story is taken from a centuries-old folk song now brightly and gently illustrated. This traditional Christmas story is perfect to read to small children during the holidays to teach about the nativity and the heart-felt gifts the animals at the manger gave to baby Jesus, sharing their kindness and love.
Joyful and sweetly illustrated, The Friendly Animals: A Christmas Story is perfect for those looking to teach little ones about the nativity.
