about this item

A Christmas tale for young children that celebrates the true meaning of the season “Come!” drummed a woodpecker one cold, wintry day. “A baby is coming. There’s work to be done!”  One by one, from field and forest, the animals make their way to a barn. The cow has sweet-smelling hay to offer the baby. The bluebird has the gift of song. And a lamb has soft, cozy wool. But the shy little fox has nothing to offer . . . or so he thinks.   With its gentle text and warm, expressive illustrations, this irresistible take on the Nativity story invites even the youngest child to discover the truest gifts of the Christmas season: the ones that come from the heart.PRAISE FOR THE CHRISTMAS FOX"In this understated, beautifully illustrated Nativity story, a little fox is invited to come along on a journey because a baby will be arriving soon. Glowing watercolor illustrations in a loose, expressive style capture the antics of the fox and create an exciting environment of starry skies, snowy fields, and a light-filled stable. A lovely, gentle, and open-ended introduction to the story of the birth of baby Jesus" --Kirkus Reviews"McGrory transplants the Nativity story to a snowy woodland setting. . . . McGrory’s soft, gestural artwork, washed with pale color and infused with lemony light, celebrate the fox’s play, and his joyful spirit is a gift both to the waiting child and to readers." --Publishers Weekly"This homey take on the Nativity story delivers a warm tale of love and humility for theholidays." --The Horn Book
