A kiss for Jesus, Savior and Lord,
A kiss for Mary, His mother,
A kiss for Andrew, the first He called,
A kiss for Peter, his brother.
Goodnight Jesus is a sweet, gentle story that acknowledges all the people we know and love as nighttime draws near and bedtime kisses are given to everyone from saints to siblings. What better way than through a kiss to say goodbye to the day?
This 24-page board book, beautifully illustrated by iconographer and artist Nicholas Malara, is sturdy enough for lots of use and will become the favorite of many little ones who want just one last kiss before drifting off to sleep.
