Overview

Jesus our brother, kind and good,
Was humbly born in a stable of wood,
And the friendly beasts around him stood,
Jesus our brother, kind and good.

 
This beautiful holiday book uses a timeless, beloved Christmas song to tell the story of the nativity. In the manger where Jesus was born, all the animals flock around Him and tell of the special gifts they gave to the infant. From the donkey that carried Mary to Bethlehem to the sheep whose wool made the baby a warm blanket and the doves that cooed a lullaby, these fluffy creatures will steal children's hearts. Author/illustrator Patricia Eubank even penned two new verses to include the familiar cat and dog!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
10/01/2013
PreS-Gr 3—Eubank has slightly modified the traditional carol made famous by Johnny Cash and added a bright array of sentimentally reverent illustrations of the animals that contributed gifts to the baby Jesus. For example, "'I,' said the sheep with the curly horn,/'I gave him my wool for a blanket warm./He wore my coat on Christmas morn. I,' said the sheep with the curly horn." The plodding quatrains work better as a song than as poetry and the undistinguished watercolors with big-eyed animals do not add much.—Anne Connor, formerly at Los Angeles Public Library
