This sweet barnyard Christmas counting story is the perfect gift this holiday season!

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.

This very simple book will enthrall all ages. Simply told - it's the story of how animals can 'talk' on Christmas Eve. They discuss Christmas, and what it means to them. BTW - it also is a counting book - 1 to 10! The illustrations are 'soft' and beautifully done.

This is a favorite from my daughter's childhood.  Though I still have hers, I bought another for my 9 month  old granddaughter.  I'm looking forward to reading it again - and again - and again!

We love the vintage Little Golden books, and thought this newer publication was in keeping with the classics - beautiful poetry and simpler illustrations. Another great book to teach little ones the true meaning of Christmas.

I have an older version of this book from when I was a child and it was always one of my favorites. And now it's THE favorite Christmas book for my 2 year old. Here it is a week after Christmas and she still wants to read it every night.

This is one of the sweetest memories I have of my 2 sons growing up. Every Christmas eve I would read this book to them. Now I have grandchildren, & I pray one Christmas Eve they will be able to experience it too.

I thought this book was really cute, but it didn't catch my sons attention. He is 3, so maybe he will like it more later.
