Reviews - What do customers think about Away in a Manger?
Cute book, but music is too fast Jan 3, 2008
This is a nice board book with cute illustrations. While I love the song "Away in a Manger" and the Christmas story, the musical button on this book plays the song way too fast to sing along. It makes it sound annoying and really ruins the experience of reading the book with a child.
The holidays are not complete without an enchanting release from Kinkade! Oct 16, 2007
It was in the year 1885 when Martin Luther published the lyrics to AWAY IN A MANGER in a Lutheran Sunday School Book. Ten years later, in 1895, William J. Kirkpatrick added music to the lyrics to turn it into a song. And now, over one hundred years later, Thomas Kinkade has brought those words to life in the form of a beautifully illustrated picture board book, perfect for even the tiniest tot to enjoy.
Within AWAY IN A MANGER, Kinkade uses his signature ability to capture the light in just about any situation, to bring the words of AWAY IN A MANGER to life. The illustrations work to show the little Lord Jesus, as he lays in a manger, hay surrounding him; but does an exquisite job to show families walking through snowy pathways, lights shining brightly, enjoying the spirit of the holidays. He even adds in a group of carolers singing at the door of a home, making the song ring out clearly in the mind of reader's.
Kinkade has the ability to bring families together during the holidays. His beautiful illustrations cause viewers of all ages, male or female, to emit gasps of surprise, joy, love...you name it; and set the perfect environment for families to share a little time with one another, wrapped up cozily side-by-side. AWAY IN A MANGER is certainly the ideal book for the family to snuggle up with on Christmas Eve, in front of a blazing fire, warm cocoa in your hands. The holidays are not complete without an enchanting release from Kinkade!
