Synopsis:Goodnight, Manger, written by Laura Sassi and illustrated by New York Times bestselling artist Jane Chapman, tells the story of Mary and Joseph as they try to lull Jesus to sleep in the noisy stable after his birth. It's bedtime for Baby Jesus, but who knew a manger could be so loud? Mama, Papa, and all of the animals try to lull the baby to sleep, but between itchy hay, angels' joyful hosanas, and three kings bearing noisy gifts, it's just too loud. Until Mama finds a way for everyone to work together to shepherd Baby into peaceful dreams under the twinkling stars.
What did I think of this book:This is a cute children's book to read to your little ones at bedtime. I liked how each page had a different poem on it to tell the little ones goodnight. The drawings were very nice and fit the story nicely. This is a book that can be read over and over again. There are more books by this author and I will be looking into getting them for my little niece and nephew.
