Lovely New Children's Story,
This review is from: Room for a Little One: A Christmas Tale (Hardcover)
It's a cold winter's night, and Kind Ox is nesting, all snug in his stable out of the bitter wind, when a visitor comes along. Old Dog. Kind Ox invites Old Dog into the stable where he will be protected from the harm of the storm, and soon more animals have joined the two of them. Stray Cat, and Small Mouse, to be exact. Then Tired Donkey comes along, carrying a woman, Mary, on his back, and a man, Joseph, at his side. Mary is weary, for she is about to have her baby, but there is no room at the inn, so Joseph is worried. But Kind Ox invites them in, and provides shelter for Mary as she gives birth to the baby Jesus, a group of animals around them.
ROOM FOR A LITTLE ONE is a lovely picture book that will paint a simple picture of how Jesus came to be for young children. The prose is extremely easy to understand for all ages, and the illustrations, depicting scenes of animals in the snow, and inside the warmth of the stable, will capture the hearts of parents, as well as their children. A wonderful holiday tale.

thank you for the review. not sure whether to get this of clopper the donkey. this was very helpful pluss you indicated "for all children, simple, etc". brent is 4 and a half and it's important to get a book that is at his level. being the grandmother and not around the children like their mother is and not having the book in front of me to peruse, zeroing in on age appropriate is important. thanks.
