Laura Sassi, New York Times bestselling author, and Jane Chapman, bestselling artist, pair their talents to deliver Goodnight, Manger. Children will love seeing what happens as Mary and Joseph try to get Jesus to sleep in the noisy stable on the night of his birth.
Who knew a manger could be so loud? It's supposed to be bedtime for baby Jesus. Mama, Papa, and all of the animals try to lull the baby to sleep, but the itchy hay, angels' joyful hosannas, and the three kings bearing noisy gifts make it so loud. Mama finds a way for everyone to work together to shepherd Baby into peaceful dreams under the twinkling stars.
The sweet rhyming text of Goodnight, Manger is in the style of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site and delivers a unique twist on the classic manger tale, combining the comforting and familiar routines of bedtime with the special awe and wonder of the manger story.
