PollyGirlTexasAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Perfect Book to Read all Year Long!February 11, 2019PollyGirlTexasAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Ever since Christmas my 4 yr old has been asking me a lot of question. She wants to understand about Jesus' birth and the events that surrounded it. When I came across The Silent Noisy Night by Jill Roman Lord I thought this would be a good book to help her see all the animals that could have been there that night.
We enjoyed the colorful, happy illustrations and we love reading the rhyming verses. This is such a fun book to read and one we will read all year long and not just at Christmas time!
Elena Wiggins5 Stars Out Of 5The Silent Noisy NightDecember 26, 2018Elena WigginsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We sing Silent Night at Christmas, but the very first Christmas could very well have been a very noisy night, as this adorable and creative Christmas board book conjectures. If Jesus was born in a stable or cave in the little town of Bethlehem, out in the countryside of Judea, there could have been some cows moo-ing, goats bleating, horses neigh-ing, chickens clucking, donkeys braying, mice squeaking, and crickets chirping, right? With colorful illustrations and short sentences for even the youngest of toddlers to track along, this is an adorable way for kids to imagine what it was like on the night that our Savior was born. And at the end, they are encouraged to make a joyful noise themselves, celebrating the good news of Jesus with delight.
FayJac5 Stars Out Of 5Great children's board book!December 24, 2018FayJacThis beautifully illustrated and written children's book by Jill Roman Lord and illustrated by Kelly Breemer brings up an interesting question. Was it a very noisy night with animals making noise, people shouting and singing, etc., when Christ was born? Probably so. We know the shepherds returned "glorifying and praising God." It makes the point that we need to make a joyful noise in praise that our Savior is born after going through all the noises that may have been heard that night.
This is a fun padded board book that I look forward to reading it to my grandchildren when they come for Christmas. It may have been a noisy night, but let's not be afraid to make noise now in praise to our Savior born that night!

BeccaRae5 Stars Out Of 5Fun Read With Little OnesDecember 23, 2018BeccaRaeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Like many children, I grew up with my mom reading "T'was the Night Before Christmas" each year before we went to bed on Christmas eve. While I don't have any children myself yet, I have felt a strong conviction that I'd like to replace that book with something that centers more on Christ. I'm happy to share that I consider this an excellent choice for little ones. Since it's a sturdy board book it should be able to stand up against the destructive capabilities of your tiny tots.
We all know the song "Silent Night," but was the night of Christ's birth truly silent? Since Jesus was born in a manger that was shared with other animals, it's easy to imagine there'd be plenty of noise to surround the newborn king. It's an interesting concept to think about, and kids will enjoy the story as the different animals sounds are added to sing their praises to the Lord. WONDERFUL little story!

Jolene5 Stars Out Of 5Would make a great Christmas book for young children!December 23, 2018JoleneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Silent Noisy Night, written by Jill Roman Lord and illustrated by Kelly Breemer, is an adorable children's book. The padded hardback covers and sturdy pages are ideal since it's best suited for children under 4 years old. The colorful illustrations evoke an sense of celebration and joy. The lilting narrative is sure to engage little ones, especially if the reader makes all the animal sounds.
Since having children, I've told my husband that there's no way it was a silent night when Jesus was born and I like the idea of creation celebrating in response to the birth of Jesus. Much of the book has illustrations reflecting the night of Messiah's birth. However, the last few pages have illustrations of kids participating in modern-day celebrations and I really liked that as I think it could help them connect these things we do (singing Christmas carols, giving gifts, etc.) with the Christmas story.
This book is a Christmas gift for my three year old, so she hasn't seen it yet and I can't add in her reactions, but I'm pretty sure she's going to enjoy this book.
