This favorite Christmas picture book is now available in a reduced size padded board book perfect for little hands with bright red foil on the cover to share the holiday cheer! In the stable next to an inn, Kind Ox is just settling in for the night when Old Dog comes into the stable. Kind Ox makes room for Old Dog, who in turn makes room for Stray Cat, who then makes room for Small Mouse--and each time, the larger animal says to the small, There's always room for a little one here. Finally, Tired Donkey comes by, carrying Joseph and Mary, who asks Where will my child be born? Kind Ox replies, There is always room for a little one here. And so, Jesus is born in the stable with the animals all around Him.
