A modern Christmas classic about how the animals prepare a cozy welcome for the baby Jesus.
“Who is coming to our house?
Someone, someone,” says Mouse.
As Pig makes room, Lamb cleans up, Goose stacks the hay, and Duck lines the crib with eiderdown, Mary and Joseph are on their way by donkey. All the animals are eager to welcome the baby Jesus to their home.
This was one of my favorite childhood books, and is a cute, animal-centric version of the birth of baby Jesus. The preparations the animals take to prepare for their special visitor are endearing and remind us (and little ones) that doing our little part makes a difference. Rhymes are cute and the repetition is great of little readers!
All the animals are prepping and cleaning for a special guest! This book is a fun twist on the manger/nativity story and includes a lot of animals for children to name and look at. It is a little long, but I love that the animals are preparing for Mary and Joseph and welcome them.
