Jane Chapman (Illustrator)

  • Age Range: 4 - 8 years
  • Grade Level: Preschool - 3

The board book edition of 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.
With sweet, rhyming text in the style of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site, 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 manger story.

My thoughts; GOODNIGHT, MANGER is a very cute Christmas story about the birth of Christ. With colorful pictures and sturdy pages, it is the best book to read to little babies, making it ideal for church nurseries, day cares, and grandparents. Sturdy, as long as the child doesn't try to eat the book unsupervised for a long period of time, this should survive several years of babies. A great book. I would love this for my grandbabies. Recommended.
