"Who is coming to our house?
Someone, someone," says Mouse.
As Pig makes room, Lamb cleans up, Goose stacks the hay, and Duck lines the crib with eiderdown, Mary and Joseph are on their way by donkey. All the animals are eager to welcome the baby Jesus to their home.
"My ideas come from everywhere: a childhood drawing I did of a porcupine, a silly song I once sang to a godchild, and my teacher-niece and pupil-grand nephew getting ready for kindergarten, all kicked off an idea for a book. Now I am writing novels, and it's the same what-if approach, although the first one came out of my West Virginia boyhood. It's called Crossing the Trestle, and the young narrator faces an obstacle I did as a child."
Mr. Slate is Professor of Art Emeritus at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, where he taught for 30 years. He now lives in Silver Spring, Maryland, with his wife, Patty. A Marine Air Corps veteran, he and his wife have set foot on all seven continents and traveled in 39 countries. They have lived in both Japan and Italy.
"Snacking is my big vice, especially chocolate and oatmeal raisin cookies. To keep my weight down, I take tai-chi courses with a world grand master and play water volley ball."

Marianne4 Stars Out Of 5Who is Coming...January 7, 2016MarianneQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3This is a nice board book but some of the words are too hard and the adult reading it outloud has to make changes. Also the ending does not say anything about Baby Jesus, just one picture on the last page. There should be words there about the baby
Kaitlin5 Stars Out Of 5December 28, 2009KaitlinThis is an adorable board book to read for Christmas! Our kiddos (up to age 5) all enjoyed reading this as we prepared for the Christmas season.
