The Animals' Christmas Eve {Books 4 Christmas}

Following on from yesterday's Little Golden Book today I'd like to introduce you to The Animals' Christmas Eve.  This is such a cute story from 1977. It's the retelling of the story of the birth of Christ from the perspective of the animals in the barn.  As they gather together to retell to their offspring of that first Christmas many years ago.

 In the barn on Christmas Eve,
After all the people leave,
The animals, in voices low,
Remember Christmas long ago . . .

So begins a sweet rhyming story in which a group of animals recounts the events surrounding Jesus' birth in the manger, and the parts some of their ancestors played in it. This is also a counting book.
