" Sweet book, not much reading though. " said.

"I could have given it a 1 star but..it did have some good points. The story is cute enough...but the pictures...oh good grief...I have no many historical and doctrinal issue for me that I just couldn't give it a good rating. Maybe if you don't look at the pictures you will appreciate the words better. First of all the Inn the go to looks like it is from 1700 England not BCE 1. Then then send them to the stable, which historically was known to be a cave and it is what looks like at 20th Century Garage with red brick. Then to top it off in the 'stable' there is a blue bar stool.... yes a bar stool it just looks very modern...this stable is too nice and clean and beautiful...but it is a picture book so... it does need to appeal to a child...but really...I guess you get what you get!!! Joseph looks like he is from the 1970s hippy instead of a carpenter from way back when..so read the book but don't look at the pictures......I had such high hopes for this book it look really sweet and different....and it ended up being different and not in a good way....

"Mothers in the Bethlehem manger (cow, hen, ewe, mare) bond in support of expectant mother Mary in the night of Jesus' birth.

Sweet, simple verse is a delightful composition. Nice illustrations, great Xmas read-aloud for ages 3 to 7. But is also very heartwarming to us mothers. Makes a great gift from one mom to another, as it is all about the bond all mothers share.

Nice offshoot of the song "The Friendly Beasts", always a favorite with young children.

"This was such a sweet story using the animals that might be in a stable. Loved the illustrations. Appropriate for young children and for older animal lovers." said.

"I first found this little book in a elementary school picture book collection and looked for sometime for a copy. I was so happy to find this on Amazon and my grandkids love it." said.
