Message of the Birds

by Kate Westerlund 

Long ago, a baby was born in a stable. The animals and birds listened to the baby's coos and heard a song of blessing. But now, the old owl says, people rarely listen to the song anymore. A young robin suggests that they sing the song to children, for children would listen and understand. So the song is passed from bird to bird and child to child, calling for peace on Earth.

A gentle picture book for quiet holiday reading.
