The Lord's Prayer with commentaries by Rick Warren goes through the Lord's Prayer with additional comments, prayers by Rick Warren. The illustrations are beautiful, but I personally didn't love the book layout. The prayer is broken up by the commentaries and my toddler was not too interested in the story. This is a large beautifully bound hard cover book but may be better suited for early readers instead of toddlers.

Goodnight Manger is the story of how noisy the stable must have been the night baby Jesus was born. As a mom, it made me laugh to see the "true" account of trying to put a baby to sleep with all the sounds and "visitors"! It showed Mary not as a calm peaceful mom, but the frantic sleepless mom we all have experienced. The story is a quick read and will be great for bedtime during this Christmas season to help remind our little ones, and ourselves, the true meaning of Christmas.
The only reason I'm giving this book 4 stars is because I personally didn't love the illustrations.
