The Donkey’s Christmas Song by Nancy Tafuri

The Donkey’s Christmas Song is a great Christmas book for young kids.  Though the text is brief, it tells about how Jesus was born in a stable and all the animals wanted to welcome him.  Each animal gently welcomes him into the world, until it is the donkey’s turn.  His raucous hee-haw makes the baby laugh.  (You just have to suspend your disbelief in a newborn baby’s ability to laugh.)  The illustrations are simple, but captivating.  I think this book is a great way to get young children interested in the story of Jesus’ birth, which you can then discuss and expand on.
