 The First Christmas Ever
About the Book:
A simple retelling of the Christmas story, from the angel s visit to Mary to the shepherds joyful praise of the new born Baby, this small format paperback, The First Christmas Ever is sure to be popular with young readers. Using the vibrant and popular artwork of Dennis Jones, families can share this timeless story of God's  love each holiday season."

My Review:
 A delightful retelling of the birth of Christ written specifically for 4-8 year old. This booklet is a retelling or copied version out of the Read With Me Bible. The story includes the complete retelling of the first Christmas, not just up to the birth in the manger but also the part of the story of Mary and Joseph along with Baby Jesus after they moved to a safer place to avoid King Herod.

 Also at the end of the small booklet, you have a few pages showing and telling a brief summary of what happened to Jesus as time went on. Thank God for the two obedient souls of Mary and Joseph, because of their parts in the Christmas story along many others we had a Saviour!
