My kids love Christmas books so when I was given the opportunity to review and give one away I accepted. :)
 
 
 
 
We enjoyed The First Christmas Night! It's your typical, Biblical Christmas story and that is a story that never gets old no matter how many times or ways it is retold! As we were reading Liza said to me "that looks real!" The illustrations are amazing! Very realistic and absolutely beautiful! Two thumbs up for this book! We'll be reading it all December long.

 
 
 
About the Book
The First Christmas Night is a beautiful retelling of the birth of Jesus on that joyous night in Bethlehem so long ago. The poem begins with the arrival of Mary and Joseph in Bethlehem and winds though Christ’s birth, the angels’ appearance to the shepherds, and the visit by the Wise Men.  The simple, yet elegant, verses will appeal to little ones and are accompanied by the rich acrylic illustrations of Christine Kornacki.
 
Who is it for?
Kids ages 4-8 - The rhyming language can help them develop verbal language skills and learn to read
Family story time during the holidays
Children's Ministers and Sunday school teachers
Christmas carolers could set it to a tune!
