Room for a Little One: A Christmas Tale
by Martin Waddell
illustrated by Jason Cockcroft
Echoing the sentiment of Isaiah 11:6, "The wolf shall dwell with the lamb...", this peaceful story is led by Kind Ox and her gentle refrain: "There's always room for a little one here." She invites Old Dog, Stray Cat, and Small Mouse to rest in the stable, each returning her kindness by making the others feel at ease. Finally, Tired Donkey arrives and the animals welcome Jesus: "…a Little One came for the world."
