May 16, 2008I like this one because it's the nativity with a different twist. It's told from the barn animal's points of view. They all work hard to prepare the barn for their special guests. It's surprising what one can learn from a simple Children's book, I think the subtle message here is: "What are WE doing to prepare for the Savior"?
Dec 14, 2018All the animals are making room for Baby Jesus to come to their house. Good to read to 18 months- to 4 yr olds.
Oct 09, 2017Lovely illustrations with a lyrical text as we see the animals in the barn preparing for the arrival of guests. Who will it be. . .Mary and Joseph of course.
May 06, 2012A lovely little book that's great to read any time of year, not just Christmas. The text is simple and the illustrations are wonderful.
Apr 13, 2016I love pulling this book out every Christmas and reading to whomever will listen.
Nov 27, 2017Rhymey story of Mary and Joseph coming to the manger. There are a couple pictorial clues as to who it is that's coming even though Mouse says only, "Someone, someone": a village that looks suspiciously like Bethlehem and a man and a woman riding on a donkey. Nicely illustrated by Ashley Wolff.
Jan 12, 2016This is a pleasant variation on the story of the birth of Jesus, focused on the manger animals who are anticipating His arrival. I found the illustrations charming, my one-year-old enjoyed pointing to the animals, and my three-year-old liked this so much that he asked to take it to school one day to share it with his class.
Nov 21, 2018This sweet picture books tells young readers how the farm animals all prepared to welcome their special guests - Mary and Joseph and the night of the first Christmas. Lovely illustrations and simple, rhyming text will help young readers realize just how special the birth of Jesus was, making this a nice read aloud for bedtime or to share with church groups during the holidays.
Dec 09, 2012Synopsis: ""Who is coming to our house?
Dec 14, 2012This is a great story about the animals in the stable where Jesus was born, preparing for Mary and Joseph to arrive. Very sweet. Excellent read-aloud. Great way to talk about anticipation and preparation, which is what Advent is all about. I also appreciate the way the animals want to clean every part of the stable (even the spider wants to make new webs!), which symbolizes (for me) preparing our hearts for Christ. Advent is a penitential season.
Dec 13, 2012Who is Coming to Our House? (paperback] by Joseph Slate, illustrated by Ashley Wolff follows the animals who get the stable ready for Joseph and Mary, and their blessed event.

Jan 26, 2020I remember reading this with my mom as a child. Such good memories.
Dec 11, 2013A sweet read. A couple of the rhymes are awkward (a goose spreading the manger with eider, for example), but overall I enjoy this simple rhyming book with a variety of animals as they eagerly anticipate someone coming to their "house" -- a stable. Young children may even be surprised the first time they hear this book to realize that the visitor coming is JESUS!
Apr 08, 2015In the book Who Is Coming To Our House? There is a mouse who knows that someone special is on their way to the house. All the animals get ready for this someone special. Soon they will find out.

Sep 30, 2013It would be very easy to over-read this book, and see too much meaning in the actions of the different animals, but I will try to avoid doing so.
Feb 02, 2017This is one of my favorite books and has been since I was a very young child. It is a rhyming book about the story of Christmas told from the perspective of the animals found in the stable. It is a very simple story with easy to read words and amazing pictures.
Dec 23, 2017Im all about artistic liberty, but...a pig? So, you have to ignore that Mary and Joseph were Jews. Which is a pretty major point to ignore. I’m all about artistic liberty, but...a pig?

Jan 25, 2020Childrens book are best and I love the story and make me say wow when my girlfriend said to me to read this short story on Booksale. Someday I will buy this for my children.
Nov 07, 2018I just love this sweet, sweet little board book. Mia and I read it all year round. It always makes me tear up. The sweet gestures of the animals show such reverence for the birth of the Savior.
