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.

The stars are twinkling and it's time for bed. Mama and Papa try to settle the baby but with rustling animals, choir voices echoing above and a visit from royalty, the baby will not settle. Mama has an idea. A lullaby. Beautiful illustrations and rhyming text tell the story of a busy manager, upset baby and anxious parents. A peaceful read with a peaceful ending for the holiday season.
