And he came up with a question: Who built the manger where Mary and Joseph found shelter?andlt;BRandgt;The answer is conveyed in this beautifully crafted picture book that envisions a young boy, a shepherd and carpenter both who, out of love and kindness, cleared the way for another shepherd and carpenter to be born on Christmas day.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;iandgt;The boy looked in the infantand#8217;s eyes andlt;BRandgt;andlt;/iandgt;andlt;iandgt;And in his heart he knew andlt;BRandgt;andlt;/iandgt;andlt;iandgt;The babe would be a carpenter andlt;BRandgt;andlt;/iandgt;andlt;iandgt;Heand#8217;d be a shepherd too.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;/iandgt;Told in gentle rhyme and illustrated with Ashley Bryanand#8217;s enormous talent, this is a picture book that captures the reason for the season in all its wonder and beauty. andlt;iandgt;Who Built the Stable?andlt;/iandgt; is a celebration of Christmas, of the kindness of children, and of the new hope born with each new baby.
