Tonight, snake, toad, scorpion, cockroach, bat, spider, and rat are all on a journey. They know that no one will see them when they arrive for there will be no light in the corner where they gather. But they will be there in the stable on that very special night.The donkey, the cow, and the lamb witnessed the arrival of the baby, but, in this tale, the smaller, lesser-loved creatures have a place in the stable and give a different perspective to the story.A series of lovely paintings illustrate [...]

The illustrations here are beautiful, and the story is a wonderfully original take on the nativity scene. The words and rhymes are simple and easy to follow. However, for the age level that this book seems to be aiming for, the I feel that the author is asking a lot in terms of what the kids will understand about the context. Parents might need to sit down and tell the kids a little bit about nativity stories and what all of the animals are going to see.

Ingenious and Original. When i read this book it makes me reflect on the soon to be mission of the babe of Bethlehem. He did not come for those who were whole but for those who were sick and in need of a physician. For some reason that strikes a strong parallel with the animals at Christ's birth. Often times we think of the donkey, the camel, and the lamb. Eve bunting however makes us think of those creatures which are not so pretty: the spider, the rat, the cockroach, etc. Just as it may be dif [...]

the strangest and one of the most real nativity books i've read. Christ came for the outcast, the tax-collector, the poor, the sinners - it should be only natural then that we recognize He came for the bat, the spider and the scorpion, all are welcome who come to His table. Wendel Minor shows he can even illustrate the uncomfortable creatures of the night.

This is a must-read for me every year at Christmas. It is crucial that my children understand that if Jesus came into the world for us, then he also came into the world for the non-human creatures that people tend to marginalize and ignore, or worse, try to eradicate. I love the text and the illustrations in this book. My children like to find the Star of Bethlehem in the pictures.

A simple but different view of the Nativity. "Less loved" animals like a scorpion, rat, cockroach, etc. journey to witness the Nativity, out of sight, in the darkness. Could be a great story to teach compassion for animals often regarded as pests to children, or excite children who are enamored with such animals. Positively gorgeous illustrations.

This is an unusual perspective on the Nativity story. Each page poetically describes one of the creatures that was there to behold the newborn babe. But these creatures aren't those we typically think of being there: sheep, donkey, cow. These creatures include the cockroach, scorpion, snake and rat. The illustrations are beautiful and the perspective both unique and calming.

You don't think of scorpions, bats, and cockroaches being present at the birth of Christ, but I suppose they were there along with the donkeys and camels. This is the nativity from their point of view--a nice reminder that God values all creatures, not just pleasant ones.

Rats, cockroaches, bats, scorpions.e outcasts of the natural world but they too, witnessed the Nativity. A somber tribute to the lesser creatures. Moving and thought provoking.

I find it strange that Mary is described as "swollen".
