From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–After a newborn baby in a stable smiles, a small bird spreads the news of his birth throughout the countryside, and all sorts of woodland animals come to welcome the infant. He coos with glee, and the animals fall asleep all around him as his mother sings a lullaby. Although neither the baby nor his mother is named in the simple rhyming text, one assumes it is Baby Jesus. Anachronisms aside (the snowy, forested countryside; a mother looking more like a 19th-century Dutch peasant than a young woman of Galilee; a tortoise crawling through the snow), the gouache paintings have huge appeal–no young child will be able to resist the three kittens in mittens or the gift-bearing bugs wearing hats and scarves. Bethlehem this is not, but the story remains the same. Buy it if you are looking for sweet and cheerful books for holiday sharing.–Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By B. Travieso on January 12, 2009
Format: Hardcover
My niece was delighted with the rhyming story and the illustrations of this beautiful Nativity tale. She loved the adorable animals dressed in winter finery. I think the idea of using a woodland setting gives the story a unique twist and adds to its timlessness and universality. I particularly liked the message that this special Child's love extends to the smallest of creatures, or by inference perhaps, to those among us who are less powerful and fortunate.

Hurry! Hurry! is a great seasonal book for little ones and can be enjoyed beyond Christmas. Jane Dyer's illustrations are soft and inviting; one immediately feels a quiet presence in the snowy woods with the animals gathering to see the sweet baby Jesus. Grandparents and parents will enjoy sharing this book with their special little people.

Jane Dyer's sweet illustrations grace this "getting ready for Christmas" story. Animals spread the word that a child has been born...

Not for those who like their Christmas stories to be tightly religious, or those who fuss about zoological accuracy (yes, I know, many of the animals pictured would not have been found in the Holy Land! :) ). Instead, this is a simple, sweet children's story which shows how everyone in the world, including "all creatures great and small", can be excited and happy about learning the good news of Christmas.

Lovely to share with young picture-book readers, who will enjoy the illustrations of a wide variety of friendly, gentle animals.

This book is a great introduction for a toddler to the Christmas story depicting the joy and excitement of the baby's birth. Young children can readily identify with the cute young animals in their excitement to go see the baby in the manger.
