“This is a baby Jesus story. Mary and Joseph look for an inn but none have any room. One man tells them they can go in his stable though. They have a donkey with them. When Joseph takes the blanket off the donkey, there is a cross mark on his back. The book shows a picture of a real donkey at the end and there is a cross for real.
The book says how tabby cats got ‘M’s’ on their heads. There is a picture of a real cat at the end and he has an ‘M’ on his head. That is kind of cool!
I liked this story because it is a little different than some of the other stories about baby Jesus. ‘A Christmas Legend’ has some of the same things too though.”
