Christmas is about the Christ Child's birth and no carol expresses the beauty and simplicity better than "Silent Night". Little ones can now learn the history behind the carol.A wonderful book to share at the holiday season. One little song can change the world as this one did!For me, it would not be Christmas without that lovely carol.I include Silent Night as one of my lullabies to my little ones.

This is THE Christmas find of the year for us!!! I had no previous exposure to the origin of Silent Night and this beautifully written story really touched my heart. What a wonderful book!
