On a quiet but wondrous Christmas Eve, the nativity story comes to life, and families everywhere celebrate the miracle of Christmas.
Nola Buck's simple poetic text and tender illustrations by Sarah Jane Wright make this gentle holiday goodnight book a joy to read and share with those you love!
Nola Buck (the pen name of Laura Godwin) is the author of many well-loved children's books, including Christmas in the Manger. With Ann M. Martin she also coauthored The Doll People, The Runaway Dolls, and The Meanest Doll in the World. She now lives in New York City but grew up in Alberta, Canada, and has fond Christmas Eve memories of watching Eeyore, the family donkey, play a part in the live Christmas pageant in her hometown.
Sarah Jane Wright is the creator of an original line of artwork that hangs in nurseries and children's bedrooms worldwide. A Christmas Goodnight is her first book for children. She grew up in the greater Washington, D.C., area, where her favorite Christmas Eve tradition was sleeping in the same room as her four siblings so they could all wake up together on Christmas morning. She now lives in Provo, Utah, with her husband and their three children.
“Quietly charming. A fine read-aloud for a group of little ones, but also a cozy choice as a December bedtime story. A terrific introduction for preschoolers who are just learning about the Nativity story.”
“The soothing rhyming text and soft palette of the illustrations is ideal for bedtime read-alouds while also serving as a straightforward introduction to the important characters in the story of that first Christmas. ”
“A cozy holiday read; no doubt plenty of families will appreciate this gentle version of the Christmas story.”
“A quiet offering for those looking for a noncommercial take on the holiday.”
