All is quiet in the stable, except for Baby Owl. "Whooo is the new baby sleeping in the nest below? he asks his mother, and "Where are his feathers?" As Baby Owl listens to Mama Owl's patient answers, he learns all about the Holy Child and the bright star that has come with him. Young children can share in Baby Owl's wonder in this cozy and joyous rendition of the Nativity Story.
