"In this understated, beautifully illustrated Nativity story, a little fox is invited to come along on a journey because a baby will be arriving soon. Glowing watercolor illustrations in a loose, expressive style capture the antics of the fox and create an exciting environment of starry skies, snowy fields, and a light-filled stable. A lovely, gentle, and open-ended introduction to the story of the birth of baby Jesus" --Kirkus Reviews
"McGrory transplants the Nativity story to a snowy woodland setting. . . . McGrory’s soft, gestural artwork, washed with pale color and infused with lemony light, celebrate the fox’s play, and his joyful spirit is a gift both to the waiting child and to readers." --Publishers Weekly
"This homey take on the Nativity story delivers a warm tale of love and humility for the
holidays." --The Horn Book

It has cute illustrations
It lacks the true meaning of Christmas.
The whole book is centered on fox being invited to come because “a baby is coming”. And then fox’s response is not coming but doing something else that he enjoys doing. Then the last few pages is fox invited to come and finally does and “the baby smiled”. That’s all. It doesn’t mention Jesus’s name once, it’s snowing out, and the baby is Caucasian - so it lacks accuracy. There is no Mary, Joseph, shepherds, angels.
So if you are looking for a Christmas story with the true meaning of Christmas this is not it. I like they it’s an invitation to come as you are but truly disappointed that I purchased it. This was meant to be a gift for a book exchange that I didn’t end up using.
A great Christmas season gift for young children!
