This story is so sweet- and the illustrations are so gorgeous! It is a new "Christmas Classic", a necessary annual holiday read!
Slightly Buddhist/Chinese Zodiacs echoes in the animals. In Chinese astrology 12 animals are given a year by Buddha. The order is Rat, Ox, Tiger, Cat or Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Monkey, Goat, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. This book introduces us to Kind Ox, Old Dog, Stray Cat, Small Mouse, and Tired Donkey.
Also, the refrain reminds me of one of my favourite books/songs from childhood "Always Room For One More." This book is all about compassion, and generosity, and kindness.
