Publishers Description This favorite Christmas picture book is now available in a reduced size padded board book perfect for little hands with bright red foil on the cover to share the holiday cheer In the stable next to an inn, Kind Ox is just settling in for the night when Old Dog comes into the stable. Kind Ox makes room for Old Dog, who in turn makes room for Stray Cat, who then makes room for Small Mouse--and each time, the larger animal says to the small, "There's always room for a little one here." Finally, Tired Donkey comes by, carrying Joseph and Mary, who asks "Where will my child be born?" Kind Ox replies, "There is always room for a little one here." And so, Jesus is born in the stable with the animals all around Him.

More About Martin Waddell & Jason Cockcroft
Martin Waddell wanted OWL BABIES to capture the "strong emotion of 'I want my mommy!' " that is so familiar to children. Martin Waddell is the author of more than one hundred books for young readers. Patrick Benson enlarged his technique of cross-hatching for the illustrations of OWL BABIES so that it would have "a more graphic image -- rather like a woodcut." Patrick Benson is also the illustrator of THE LITTLE BOAT by Kathy Henderson and LET THE LYNX COME IN by Jonathan London.

Great Book Feb 27, 2008
My 2 yr loved this for christmas. Just long enough for a short attention span. Illustrations are beautiful.
Room for a Little One Jan 7, 2008
This is a sweet book for a little one. It tells the story of Jesus's birth in a way that someone very young can understand. The picture illustrations are so beautiful, they almost tell the story themselves. A great way to introduce a child to the real meaning of Christmas and certainly a book for them to read over and over every year.
Room for a Little One Dec 31, 2007
I fell in love with the illustrations. Especially the animal's eyes. Peace and love permeate each scene. Beautiful way to tell the Christmas story.
Beautiful Book Dec 24, 2007
This book is beautifully illustrated. The simple story has enough repetition for little ones to quickly start reading aloud with you. The story of love, acceptance, and putting others first told in this book is heartwarming and delightful.
Beautiful Illustrations Dec 14, 2007
I give my two young boys one Christmas book to open every Sunday until the end of December. They keep coming back to this one at bed time. Simple but magical.
