Back of Book:
It was not such a silent night when Baby Jesus was born. From the baa, baa, baa of sheep to the flut-flut-flutter of angel wings, it was actually quite noisy! Here, from CBA bestseller Dandi Daley Mackall, is the story of the first Christmas, using the sounds of that miraculous night to really bring the story to life. With rich, gorgeous paintings by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher, this reverent retelling of the nativity is sure to become an essential part of every Christmas collection.
I love when I find a truly stunning Christmas book to share with my class. Listen to the Silent Night is one of those stories. The rhyming text of this book flows in a natural and beautiful way. Each page shares a different sound that was heard the night Jesus was born. This is a perfect book to use to introduce onomatopoeia in text. The paintings in this book are nothing short of breathtaking. Each detail shows readers a different part of the birth of Christ. This is a perfect book for bedtime or Christmas morning. I highly recommend this book!
