The Christmas Fox by Anik McGrory

New to our library collection, this children's book is about the birth of Jesus and the welcome he receives from the animals in the surrounding fields and forest.

Each animal has a special gift that they want to bring the baby. The woodpecker wants to spread the news, the sheep wants to bring him wool, the bird wants to bring him a song, and everyone has a gift, except the fox.

"Just come, it is enough," says the donkey. So shyly the little fox enters the stable after all the other animals have arrived and what he shares is the joy in his heart. This brings a smile to the baby, the donkey was right, "it is enough".

This is a tender story that teaches that the best gift is the one that comes from the heart.
