    Great way for young children to be introduced to religion

    I purchased this book last year prior to Christmas. I was looking for books that would be helpful in teaching my then two year old child that their was more to Christmas than Santa and presents. The pictures in this book are beautiful and my son is still today captivated by the story and it's characters. The story having been told by animals is what peeked my interest initially and what holds the interest still of my young son. This is one of his favorite books and I feel a valuable source for religious insight. I have since purchased several copies of this book as it makes a nice gift for children during the holiday season.

    Beautiful Christmas book for children!

    This is a delightfully told and well illustrated children¿s story of the birth of Jesus. It is told by the dove, who watched everything that took place in the stable, and who heard the story of how in later days the Magi came to visit. Children, of course, know that the animals in the manger had a special sense of the importance of what was happening, and they recognized even more than some humans, that the Son of God was being born. Children even imagine the animals could talk and understand. So Mrs. Dove tells the story to the other animals, who are enthralled and asked questions. The story, written in rhyming verse, is good for reading to toddlers and children up through early elementary school. Mrs. Dove, after telling of the Wise Men¿s gifts, emphasizes that God gave the best gift of all, his only Son. The animals marvel that God gave His Son for them, since they are just animals. The Dove responds that God loves even the animals. The animals discuss what gifts they might give the baby Jesus. This is my favorite part of the story. The field mouse would bring him a great big hunk of cheese. The goat said, ¿I¿d have given him myself, to be his bestest friend.¿
