One Starry Night

with audio recording

Illustrated by: Jonathan Bean
For Ages: 4 - 8
One starry night, a cow watches over her calf, a nanny goat watches over her kid, and a pig watches over her piglet. For this one moment, every family in the animal kingdom is peaceful, just like Mary and Joseph watching over their own newborn nearby. This simple yet profound book perfectly captures the universal nighttime vigil of parents everywhere while gently alluding to the presence of a nurturing creator who watches over all of us.

Lauren Thompson is at her lyrical best, while Jonathan Bean’s rich illustrations are the perfect match for this beautifully serene story of a truly Peaceable Kingdom.
