Here are guitar tabs and chords for this Christmas carol, in 3 keys - and a high and low version for the key of C:

Low key of C guitar tabs for Christmas carol The Friendly Beasts

I feel that the low C arrangement is especially useful, because it is an easy bunch of notes to approach those lower strings - all open or frets 2 or 3.  It is also a nice low sound for this song about animals, that could be used as a contrast for the higher C melody.

The other keys are fun as well; in the G arrangement, there are 2 places where finger 4 needs to be used.  Good practice for those little guys, and a reminder of why they need to keep working on their scales!

Here is a late elementary-early intermediate piano arrangement of this sweet Christmas music:

Most of the measures in this piece are pretty easy, but for kids who are unacquainted with chord inversions, this song will probably be too hard to learn quickly.  

Now here are treble, bass, and viola lead sheets:

Here is a rather amazing video of Brian Stokes Mitchell and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir

He metamorphizes into each of the different animals, and sounds so natural that you find yourself wondering which of the voices is his OWN voice! :
