Was the night that Christ was born a silent night like the song says? Or was there noise of great jubilation at the coming of our Lord and Savior? Jill Roman Lord’s new children’s book explores just that!
The –Silent- Noisy Night is a beautifully illustrated board book for families to share during Advent and Christmas. Because of the sturdiness of board books, readers can share this book with their babies and toddlers as well as their older children. Not only does this book offer a new look at the night Jesus was born (using theology), it also points to what our response should be in knowing that Christ came (our doxology and orthography). The book directs the reader to not only to sing God’s praises for Christ but also to tell others of what a great Gift that Jesus Christ is for the world.
The book has every sound in the story in bold, so you can practice the sound out loud while reading to children. For example, cows go “MOOO!” This is a nice feature of the book that can help build literacy skills too.
A couple of the animals included in the story make me want to look up if they’re located in the Palestine region, but I’m not that concerned about it. It might make a good children’s research paper if they were interested in what animals live in that habitat.
I received this book through BH Bloggers for an honest review, and I rate this cute children’s Christmas book five stars out of five. I’m so thankful for more books that point children and families to Christ! I’m excited about sharing this one with the children of my family.
