Overview

A cozy Nativity story for those who love Christmas and cats.

All babies are beautiful and all babies cry. Jesus was no exception. On the night he was born, nothing Mary, Joseph, or the animals in the stable could do would comfort him. But when a curious kitten wanted its turn to calm the baby Jesus, a loving friendship blossomed on that very first Christmas.

This perfect read-aloud was inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s drawings of La Madonna del Gatto, which show Mary lovingly holding the baby Jesus who is cuddling a cat.

“This warm, inviting interpretation offers a new slant on the familiar story, interesting to all but especially irresistible to cat lovers.”—Kirkus (starred review)
