Room for a Little One

Our seasonal book basket has been reloaded with holiday books and we've been spending some time reading them nearly every day. One in particular that Finn seems to gravitate toward is Room for a Little One. Room for a Little One is a sweet re-telling of the nativity story from the perspective of the barn animals.


The text is so simple and flows so quietly that it's easy for little ones to be satisfied with the pace and understanding of the story.


Jason Cockcroft's illustrations are simply stunning, full of light and peace. They have such a beautiful ethereal quality while remaining realistic and life-like.


In the end, you'll feel like you're peering in on the story, watching the animals welcome the Christ-child to earth.

  1. I had seen this book on amazon and wasn't sure if I'd like it or not. Thanks for the review. It was very helpful. My son is really into the "animal" side of the Christmas story. I think he'd love this book.
