Description

Everyone remembers the friendly beasts of the stable at Christmas, but what of the creatures of field and forest? From her perch in the rafters, a small bird's heart fills with love. Out over the countryside she flies, carrying the glad tidings. Bunny and fox, mole and mouse, hummingbird and tortoise, spider and ladybug all hurry to the stable to welcome the new baby. And what a noisy greeting they give! In lilting, lyric verse and magical watercolor paintings, Laura Krauss Melmed and Jane Dyer give us a Christmas treasure sure to be a family favorite year after year after year.
