Book Review: "Goodnight Manger" by Laura Sassi

"Goodnight Manger" by Laura Sassi is a cute story for children. It has an interesting font that is big enough for children to read. Some of the words are larger for effect. The book is interesting as it doesn't follow the "Away in a manger no crying He made" line. In this story, Jesus is having a difficult time falling asleep and the animals and visitors try to get Him to fall asleep. I liked the angels being portrayed as men having a party in the sky celebrating Jesus' birth.  The pictures are bright and colorful and easily engage the child in the book. One thing I didn't like was the "Three kings" showing up at the same time as the shepherds as they didn't come for awhile after Jesus was born.

I would recommend this book to those with children

I received a free copy of this book from the zblogsquad in order to give my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own and a positive review was not required.
