In case you weren’t aware, it’s Christmas time! I don’t have any littles of my own but have always loved the idea of people giving their children books for the holidays. Whether it’s a book to open and read on Christmas eve or the tradition of wrapping twelve or twenty for to count down to Christmas, starting a love a reading in children is a win in my book!
If you have young children (the ones who are at the board book stage), The Silent Noisy Night by Jill Roman Lord and Illustrated by Kelly Breemer is definitely one you should check out.
About the Book
It may have been a silent night
when Jesus came to earth. OR…
It may have been a NOISY night
to celebrate His birth.
The night Jesus was born is frequently referred to as a silent night. But how could it possibly have been silent if Jesus was born in a manger, with cows and sheep and donkeys and probably chickens and mice and birds all celebrating His birth? How could these creatures keep quiet?
The Silent Noisy Night takes on a new twist to the Christmas story by exploring what the night may have been like if all the creatures and people celebrated the birth of Jesus in their own God-given, special ways. With cows mooing and donkeys braying, it may have been a very noisy night.
This B&H Kids book includes a Parent Connection, an easy tool to help moms and dads (or anyone else who loves kids) discuss the book’s message with their child. We’re all about connecting parents and kids to each other and to God’s Word.
In My Opinion
The padded front and back cover plus the sturdy pages mean this book will withstand some wear and tear (and even some abuse from the rougher littles). But in addition to that is the wonderful story inside. The rhyming words and the animal noises are sure to be a hit with young ears, especially for those who like to elaborate when reading. I love to do it with my Sunday school kiddos.
And check out those fun illustrations. But best of all is the message of this book. That we celebrate Jesus’ birth with words, songs, joy, and every way we can.
It’s not too late to grab a copy for your child(ren) for Christmas! What a great tradition reading this book could become for you family.
