The Animals’ Christmas


by Elena Pasquali (Lion; 2011)

Oh this book is a delight. It tells the nativity story  through many different strands  in a world full of animals. It is filled with gorgeous, sumptuous  pictures full of mood and emotion and with beautifully drawn animals.   The basic message of the book is the bible prophecy from Isiaiah about the time when the lion and lamb will lie down together. In this s ory many animals come together to witness the birth of Jesus.

I read this to my children last night and they loved it, all the familiar bits about the inn and the Shepherds and the wise men and the inclusion of all the animals.



The Animals’ Christmas is a  really beautiful book to add to your Christmas collection and a lovely way to share the Christmas story and the idea of peace.
