Over in a Stable, written by award-winning author Suzanne Nelson, is a beautiful and engaging Christmas read-aloud for you and your little ones that tells the story of the nativity, featuring the memorable counting and cadence of the beloved classic poem “Over in the Meadow.”

Over in a stable, under starlight bright as sun,
stood a little drummer boy and his tattered drum one.
“Ram-pa-pum,” said the boy.
“Ram-pa-pum,” tapped the drum.
And they ram-pa-pummed a birthday song to welcome a wee son.

With vibrant illustrations from artist Aleksandar Zolotic and gorgeous verse by award-winning author Suzanne Nelson, Over in a Stable counts up from one little drummer boy to ten little children, showing the animals and people who gathered to celebrate the arrival of baby Jesus on that miraculous night in Bethlehem.
