We are avid readers at our house and are always happy to read a story about Jesus to our kids.
We have and love Goodnight Ark so I was excited to share Goodnight Manger with my monkeys. I thought it was very cute but my kids were kind of neutral about it. I am guessing they’ll be more excited for it once Christmas hits, but I guess we’ll find out!
(Me) "Did you like the book?"
(3-year-old) "Yes! The book's good. I like Baby Jesus. BUT. I didn't like that sound you made."
(Me) "What sound?"
(3-year-old) "The silly one."
(Me) "The donkey sound?"
(3-year-old) "I don't know, Mom. The awful sound."
(me) "What did you like better, the story or the pictures?"
(3-year-old) "The pictures. And I think that goat is a bad guy."
(Me) “Did YOU like the book?”
(1-year-old) “Uh, yeah.”
(Me) “What did you like about it?”(1-year-old) [points to donkey on cover] “Heh-haaaaaa!”
