M is for Manger, written by Crystal Bowman and Teri McKinley, is a lovely hardback book, just in time for the upcoming Christmas season.
This rhyming storybook travels through the alphabet, emphasizing the significance each letter has on the Christmas Story.
Each page on the left illustrates a letter of the alphabet, a pertaining drawing, and a description.
“A is for Angel.”
The pages on the right contain a poem for the corresponding letter, and a verse (NLT.)
An ANGEL said to Mary,
“You are the favored one.
You’re going to have a baby boy,
And he will be God’s Son.”
The angel told her... “You have found favor with God! You will conceive and give birth to a son.” Luke 1:30-31, NLT
The short, rhyming phrases are rhythmic, entertaining, and scriptural. I’m impressed with how thorough the book is, with biblical references for every passage.
· A presentation page, for offering the book as a gift, with printed lines where you fill in who the book is to, from, and the date.
· A page that guides parents on how the book can assist them in having their children focus on the true meaning of Christmas.
To put it simply, this book is adorable! The illustrations, by Claire Keay, are detailed and colorful, and the message is pure. This is a lovely gift for children, parents, grandparents, Sunday school teachers, and caregivers.
This book is going on my keeper shelf.
