EDITED TO ADD: The Goodnight, Manger board book is now available and has the same content (pictures & text) as the hardcover book, just with board book pages.
Goodnight, Manger is both fun and funny, and I can see this becoming one of our favorites. A few pages are written with the anticipation on one page and the completed rhyme on the next page, giving a good chance for your young ones to join in with their guesses.
Although the title may lead you to believe otherwise, Goodnight, Manger is not a Goodnight Moon-style book (where you are saying "goodnight" to something on each page). Rather, Goodnight, Manger is a story about the animals and events surrounding Jesus' birth. (Just incase it needs to be stated explicitly - this is a fictional story, not to be mistaken with a biblical account.)
The illustrations in Goodnight, Manger are fabulous. Illustrator Jane Chapman has done a wonderful job of creating images that are attractive and fun, giving the reader a lot to look at. The colors are a touch more muted than you might find in many other children's books, which I appreciate. Each illustration covers a full two-page spread.
Overall, I recommend Goodnight, Manger and think it would be a great addition to any family's bookshelf.
