Manger by Lee Bennett Hopkins — Book Review

Manger by Lee Bennett Hopkins (2014-09-01)

This book for youngsters is based on the Germanic tradition that the animals in the stable spoke on the night when Jesus was born. Each animal portrait, beautifully and realistically done by illustrator Helen Cann, is accompanied by a poem about the Christ Child. Each poem is by a different author, and all are simple enough for young children and early readers to understand. Every animal has its own gift to offer the special baby.

Children and parents will fall in love with the lovely pictures and tender message. It would make a nice Christmas gift, and reading it together could become a treasured tradition.

VERDICT: 5 STARS
