This beautifully illustrated book teaches us that everyone has a gift they can give to the newborn King, no matter their size or stature.
One cold night in Bethlehem, this sweet cat returns to her stables and see that a baby has been born there in the night. All of the animals surrounding the cat tell her about the gifts they have given to the Christ Child, and this makes the cat sad that she is too little to give a gift to the baby Jesus. When the stable cat sees the baby shivering in the manger, she leaps into his manger to comfort him and realizes that she can give him the greatest gift of all, herself.
This is truly a beautiful story that can become a traditional Christmas story with your family.
