Christmas in a Barn

Charlotte is singing "Away in a Manger" at our church's Christmas program this year.  She's very excited that she gets to dress as a sheep.  Along with practicing her song, we've been reading this sweet book.  It's illustrated by one of our favorites, Barbara Cooney, and tells the story of Mary and Joseph and baby Jesus born in the stable with all the animals around.

  2. Barbara Cooney's illustrations are lovely.
