A Very Noisy Stable by Jan Godfrey


A Very Noisy Stable by Jan Godfrey

This is the story of God, some very noisy animals in a very ordinary stable in a little place called Bethlehem, and a very extraordinary baby whose name was Jesus. Children will love the repetitive nature of the story and the noises made by the animals on that first Christmas night.


Sally Fraser, parent: This fun nativity story is for toddlers and pre-school children. The story's repetitive nature encourages children to join in and make the animal noises. This is a winning formula. Be prepared to read this story over and over again. Church Times, 29 November 2013

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
