Children will love this musical board book! The VeggieTales characters star in this story of the birth of Jesus, told through the verses of 'Away in a Manger.' The sound button triggers the carol, sung by the familiar voice of Junior Asparagus. This fun yet reverent Nativity book is a great way to keep toddlers talking -- and singing -- about the true meaning of Christmas. Ages 2-5.
Though often attributed to Martin Luther, the original verses of this classic carol were written by an unknown author and first published in 1885. One of the most popular Christmas songs of all time, 'Away in a Manger' is sung each year by millions of children and adults in homes, churches, and as part of Christmas programs and caroling.
