This little board book is very sweet. All through the story, the theme is that there's always room for a "little one." It's a message I always tried to share with my children, and I loved giving this book to my grandson. We all need to hear that we matter to someone, and I think little people need to hear it more often.

A wonderful book, beautifully inspiring and heartwarming. After each read, our son is very interested in discussing the characters, their choices and their circumstances. Our son loves to read it over and over and over even now that the Christmas season has passed. A wonderful addition for any mom or dad looking to impart some meaning into their two year old literature.

About two thousand years ago, in the town of Nazareth, a miracle occurred. There were Shepherds, the Angels and, on Epiphany, the Wise Men.
In author Martin Waddell¿s version: This particular winter night is cold, and Kind Ox lies in his stable sheltered from the harsh bitter airs. He is snuggled in the warmth of his straw bed until Old Dog comes along in search of shelter and a warm place to rest his weary bones. Kind Ox invites him in. Not long after do more travelers arrive, also in need of shelter. Stray Cat, and Small Mouse, to be precise.
Then Tired Donkey arrives, leading Joseph along, as he carries Mary on his back. Mary is very tired and needed a place to stay. At each inn, the story was the same. There was no room for them.
¿Where will my baby be born?¿ Mary asked.
Kind Ox invited Tired Donkey in. Mary gives birth to Jesus with the animals around them.
Room for a Little One: A Christmas Tale, is not only simply written and easy to understand, but is also exquisitely illustrated. This is a book your child will read everyday of the year!

Lovely illustrations which my grandchildren loved and a simple story about the birth of Jesus. It it a story of love and caring for each other as the animals welcome each new addition into the stable. It is a great addition to our library of Christmas books.

The cover picture is just one clue to the format of this wonderful children's story. Once you open and begin looking at the full-page color artistry, you are easily drawn to the simple, yet beautifully written story. Young readers' eyes will give all of their attention to this book. My two-year old great-nephew, as well as his five-year old sister were captivated from the moment I opened to the title page. They wanted to go back several times to talk about the pictures. If you enjoy sharing beautiful, meaningful, understandable picture books with young ones, you need to add this book to their library!
