The bestselling, award-winning picture book is now available in board book!

On a stormy winter night in the barn, a donkey, sheep and cow recall the important contributions their ancestors made the night Jesus was born. Pippin the pig’s ancestors were NOT at the manger, so when Pippin asks, “But what did the pigs do?” she is told, “Pippin, face it. Pigs have nothing worthy to offer.” But after Pippin runs away from the unwelcoming barn, she saves the day when a young mother wandering with her baby gets lost in a snowstorm and needs help and shelter.

This sturdy board book edition has been revised for the younger set, while keeping the soul of the story, and gently teaching readers that everyone has something to offer.

Praise:

“Little’s story is perfectly complemented by Werner Zimmermann’s sensitive pencil-and-watercolour illustrations...[the animals’] faces are very expressive.” (for the HC) —Quill & Quire

“[a] clever and gentle-hearted picture book. . . . Zimmerman’s watercolors pleasingly mix realism and adorability (in the case of Pippin’s smile).” (for the HC) —Publisher’s Weekly
