ABOUT:
M is for Manger is an ABC rhyming book for children which also tells the 
story of Jesus and his birth. 






IMPRESSION: 
This book is absolutely adorable. It's a hard-cover book and it's cover is blue and the lining on the inside has stars on it.  The illustrations by Claire Keay are simple and sweet. The book is free of clutter and very tidy. I like this. The style throughout is kept the same the whole way through. 

Page 1 has a "HOW TO USE THIS BOOK" section that details the purpose of the book, and to summarize, basically this story is told chronologically and uses Scripture to help tell the story of Jesus, the events surrounding his birth and the real meaning of Christmas. 

A is for Angel
B is for Believed
C is for Carpenter
D is for Dream
etc..  (Don't want to spoil them all!)
The authors did a great job at telling Jesus' story and I think this book would make a great addition to any child's library and would make wonderful gifts, or stocking stuffers. 
I loved that the Bible verses were short and memorizable by little ones.
