This modern Christmas classic is about a little dog who misunderstands a popular Christmas carol.
Sweet book. I was looking for books that told the story without being too cartoony or silly. I appreciate the godly perspective in this book about a family who learns the Christ-centered legend of the Christmas tree while picking out their own.
Pete the Cat's 12 Groovy Days of Christmas
This is a sweet book about a little mouse who discovers a little house just for him — the stable of a nativity scene. One night, Mortimer hears the big people reading the story of Christmas, and he realizes that the tiny baby is a statue of Jesus, who was born to save the world. He lugs all the pieces back into the stable and gives Jesus his proper place. I think you have to be careful with mixing true Bible stories with talking animals, but I liked this one.
