From the Golden Books archives comes a classic Christmas tale by a master storyteller and one of the great Golden Books illustrators.
A forest is hushed for the animals' Christmas. The elephant brings a fir tree from far away, and the animals gather silently. . . . The kangaroos decorate the tree with pinecones, and the giraffe places a star at the top.
“Now, as it happened before, the lion lay down with the lamb. . . .”
This beautifully told story by noted author Jan Wahl is brought to life with richly textured paintings by Caldecott Medalist Leonard Weisgard, celebrating the majesty and wonder of Christmas. It was originally published in 1988.
