WATCH VIDEO FOR THIS BOOK
Wonder, happiness, and excitement simply leap off the pages of this book about animals from far and near racing to welcome the newborn baby boy. Jane Dyer has outdone herself (which is hard to do) with her illustrations of the young cast of mostly familiar creatures who make the trek to meet the child. Bunny, fox, kittens, puppy, lambs, mice, etc., all hurry to answer the call of the bird, who happened to be in the stable at the birth. Soaring out over the countryside, she invites her friends from far and wide.
''Hurry, Bunny! Hurry, Fox!
The story ends with all of them -- baby and animals -- gathered in the straw of the stable fast asleep.
He's come to bring us peace,
And just for him a special star
Has risen in the east...'
'Scurry, furry little mouse!'
The mouse gazed at the star,
Deciding she would go along
Although it seemed so far.''
This is a lively, engaging read-aloud paired with colorful art that brings Hurry! Hurry! Have You Heard? alive for readers young and old.
