The ox and the donkey lived together in a stable in the little town of Bethlehem. But they were not friends. The ox bullied the gentle donkey, greedily gobbling up most of the hay and refusing to cuddle near to share his warmth. Then one cold winter night, a Child is born in their stable, and miraculously the ox is transformed into a kind and generous companion. Loek Koopmans's lovely, reverent pictures illuminate this sweet story about a small, but satisfying Christmas miracle.
