One Starry Night

one-starry-night-1One Starry Night

Lauren Thompson

Illustrated by Jonathan Bean

Margaret K. McElderry Books, 2011

From the dust jacket: “One starry night … little ones everywhere are watched over with care. Most special of all, Mary and Joseph watch over their newborn babe… and the world is filled with love.”

Shhh…this is a very quiet book. If you’re looking for quiet naptime or bedtime reading and want to read about the Christ Child, this is your book. From the three-color (muted blue, black and tan) illustrations to the quiet words, this book is all about love, rest and comfort. It’s written in a unique way, with a poem written under/next to the words of the main story (see the illustration with the cow). If you love the bedtime classic, Goodnight, Moon, you’ll love reading this gentle Nativity story to little ones after all the hustle and bustle of a busy day during the Christmas season.
