Sweet Children's Christmas Book



I ordered the Goodnight Ark book last year and I loved it. When I saw this book I just has to have it. These books are adorable. The pages are beautiful and glossy~ Jane Chapman is an amazing illustrator.  

The story is written by Laura Sassi in a rhyming fashion.  It brings to life what bedtime in a manger might have looked and sounded like. A little imagination and glamorizing helps your child think about the manger scene. All the while keeping the greatest story of all times  ~ the birth of baby Jesus~ alive with the magic of Christmas. This would make the most wonderful bedtime story for little ones this Christmas season.

I love this book and give it 5 stars. This book was provided to me in exchange for my honest review. 

Book Description

Written by Laura Sassi and illustrated by New York Times bestselling illustrator Jane Chapman, Goodnight Manger is an adorable and tender bedtime story, for Christmas or any time of year.
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. Finally Mama finds a way for everyone to work together to shepherd baby Jesus into peaceful dreams under the twinkling stars.
With sweet, rhyming text in the style of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site and Goodnight, Ark, Goodnight, Manger offers a unique twist on the classic manger tale, deftly weaving together the comforting and familiar routines of bedtime with the special magic and wonder of the nativity story.
