The Good Deed Manger: A Story of Jordan and the Birth of Jesus tells a story about a young donkey named Jordan who lived in Bethlehem. Jordan sees Mary and Joseph looking for a place to stay and takes them to his stable. Upon learning that Mary is about to have a baby, Jordan and his animal friends work quickly to fill his manger and stable with hay so that Baby Jesus will have a cozy bed. Jordan’s selfless act of kindness demonstrates to children how rewarding the smallest good deeds can be. At the end of the story, Mary tells Baby Jesus about Jordan’s good deed. Baby Jesus returns Jordan’s works with a smile.
