Children's Book Review~M is for Manger
M is for Manger is a beautiful hardcover book written by Crystal Bowman and Teri McKinley. The illustrator is Claire Keay, and the book is published by Tyndale House Publishers. It is 8"x8" and 64 pages.
M is for Manger goes chronologically and alphabetically through the story of the birth of Jesus. Each letter in the alphabet has a pair of pages, side by side. The page on the left hand side shows the letter, the word it represents,and a drawing appropriate for what the letter represents. On the right page is a few sentences explaining the story and a corresponding scripture. Several different Bible translations are used.
Here is my grandson Daniel, 4, reading M is for Manger. He loves this book. It has just enough content to be meaningful, but not too much that he gets overwhelmed and doesn't want to finish the book. The illustrations are beautiful-both children and adults will appreciate them. M is for Manger would make a wonderful gift-there is a presentation page in front for gift giving. I plan to keep this book in our Christmas box to pull out each year for our grandchildren.
You can purchase your own copy of M is for Manger at Tyndale House Publishers.
