In Little Books with Big Hearts

Room for a Little One

Room for a Little One book cover

My son received this beautiful book as a gift on his first Christmas, and we’ve read it every year since. The nativity is simply and beautifully retold through the eyes of the animals welcomed one by one into the warmth and refuge of the stable.

“Come inside,” Kind Ox called to Tired Donkey. “There’s always room for a little one here.”

Written by Martin Waddell, recipient of the prestigious Hans Christian Anderson medal, Room for a Little One is beautifully illustrated by Jason Cockcroft (best known for his Harry Potter covers). The illustrations are stunning – full of warmth and wonder and light. A big-hearted book about kindness and compassion.
