The First Christmas Night by Keith Christopher, Illustrated by Christine Kornacki
“The First Christmas Night” is written in rhyme sort of like another Christmas story (“Twas The Night Before Christmas”). This story shares the real reason for Christmas, Jesus and his birth. The books shares with your child about Mary and Joseph and the journey they have to take in order to give birth to Jesus. It talks about the wise men who came to worship at Jesus’ feet and bring gifts and about the animals Jesus was born near.
I love this book. It’s a great book to share Jesus’ birth with your child. It’s simple to read and has cute pictures to give the visualization to the story. This will be brought to our family Christmas get together and read by their Pake, our kids need to know that real reason for Christmas and know why we celebrate.
A very cute book that will become a tradition to read with our family.
