Read The Christmas Fox Online Free - A Christmas tale for young children that celebrates the true meaning of the season
“Come!” drummed a woodpecker one cold, wintry day. “A baby is coming. There’s work to be done!”
One by one, from field and forest, the animals make their way to a barn. The cow has sweet-smelling hay to offer the baby. The bluebird has the gift of song. And a lamb has soft, cozy wool. But the shy little fox has nothing to offer . . . or so he thinks.
With its gentle text and warm, expressive illustrations, this irresistible take on the Nativity story invites even the youngest child to discover the truest gifts of the Christmas season: the ones that come from the heart.

When I saw the title of this book I knew I had to get it to read to my Sweetest Wife because she's the Foxlett of Loxley. I liked the drawlings of the cuddly, so-soft fox. There was even a Birdlett in the book too. We love to play Pretend.

The Christmas Fox is a wonderful new take on the Christmas story. The fox is too busy when the other animals ask him to come and help out at the stable. The fox felt he was unworthy to come to the stable because he had nothing to give, but the donkey tells him to come, his presence will be enough...

Aw, this is such a sweet book. The illustrations are gorgeous--bright colors and soft edges give the book of warm and cozy feel. And the story is darling. It is the perfect book to share at Christmas time, about coming to Jesus just as you are, even if you think you have no gift to bring.

While many of them feature animals and how they are drawn to that stable and that momentous event, I can't think of one that features a fox as this one does. While the other animals spread the news and prepare to greet t...
