"The Animals' Christmas Eve"

"The Animals' Christmas Eve" by Gale Wiersum is a Little Golden Book you may remember from years past.

The barn animals tell their young the story of Jesus' birth.

"Five gray donkeys speak with pride, Remembering one who gave a ride: 'Our brother donkey went with them From Nazareth to Bethlehem.' Six spotted calves now nibble hay, Like that on which the baby lay. 'They put him in a manger bed, So he could rest his sleepy head.'"

The traditional illustrations and short little rhymes help make this a great Christmas bedtime story.
