I was dismayed to see that this item is not shipping with the original artwork, but rather with very colorful, stylized illustrations. The rhyme is exactly the same. I will try to post a picture of the new art. It's pretty in its own way, but lacking all the soft realism that was so charming about the original.

What a wonderful "throwback" to another era, with this Golden book which highlights some of the great artwork and poetry to celebrate Christmas. The story focuses on the many different kinds of animals who were present when little baby Jesus was born, such as chickens, four brown horses, five gray donkeys, six spotted calves, and...I think you get the point. It teaches the basics and provides great inspiration and truth for the children on one of the most sacred days of the year. Read it and your eyes will probably begin to well with tears. The picture of the eight nestling kittens is truly precious, as well as the eleven puppies who listen well.

A marvelous collection for any library!!!

I have a copy of this book from when my mid 30's kids were small and wanted to give their children duplicates. The newer version has ugly illustrations, so used copies was my solution. They love their books....perfect solution!

The Animals' Christmas Eve
Purchased it for my granddaughter for Christmas.
Read this book Chistmas Eve to the children and then placed baby Jesus in the manger.
This will be an ongoing tradition

This book was a favorite of my childen (now in their thirties) when young, and was requested by one daughter to get for the grandchilden. (I get them a Christmas book each year) We were both disappointed that they had "modernized" the illustrations and wish they had kept the original, but otherwise it's a great little book for children.

This book was one of my favorites as a little girl. Now, as a grown-up, I'm overjoyed to have found it again. Gale Wiersum takes the familiar counting-up-to-twelve verse form and from it weaves a sweet poem, recounting what the animals say to each other on Christmas Eve, "after all the people leave." Each group of creatures offers a bit of the Christmas story to their fellows. The illustrations are soft and magical. Give this one to a child who likes poetry, or read it aloud during the Christmas season (I've even seen it recommended as a resource for Sunday schools). You'll like it, too.

Love the little golden books series. This was one of my favorites as a kid. And now I just bought it for my nephews. They love being read too so thought this one would be great for during the holidays. I love the illustrations. Also thought it was cute that they had the Christmas Story in the animals point of view.

I pretty much rate all these Golden Books as 5-stars. Quality construction, a very good price, and the pictures have a cutesy look to them that mimics the movie they're based on, but with a style of their own.
