Manger by Lee Bennett Hopkins

If the animals could talk at the manger, what would they say? In this picture book, a collection of poems present different animals’ points of view. The sheep wonders at the new Shepherd; the spider weaves a cobweb crown. Even the fish welcome the babe. Helen Cann’s colorful illustrations support the work of poets Marilyn Nelson, Jane Yolen, and Alma Flor Ada, among others. If you are getting an early start on your Christmas shopping, keep an eye out for this one! Ages 4 and up. (Eerdmans)
