 A member is wishing for this book, but somehow the system isn't connecting this hardcover to the softcover they want.  Or, perhaps the member doesn't want a hardcover.
 
This is a charming story for the Christmas season.
 
Delightful, bright illustrations and easy-to-read text about animals who watch the events of the Christmas story. Beginning with the angel's visit to Mary observed by a cheerful sparrow to Clomper Donkey who takes Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem to Woolsey Lamb, himself a new baby, who visits the Christ-child, and finally camels, who complete the story with their long trek across sandy deserts and star-filled skies. Activity suggestions throughout the story involve children in the action. It's a long story for young children for whom a chapter a night would be a good advent reading, but older children will enjoy reading and sharing the story themselves.
