I’d like to thank Christian Focus Publications for sending me The Very First Christmas in return for my honest review.
The Very First Christmas by Catherine MacKenzie (CF4K, 2015) is a charming storybook for toddlers and preschoolers. The book contrasts the little reader’s first Christmas with the very first Christmas in history, explaining that the real gift of Christmas is Jesus.
The illustrations by Tessa Janes are endearing, and perfect for the tone of the book. As is typical of Christian Focus, there are no pictures of Jesus, so if that’s a concern for you (because of the second commandment), worry no more…..
The Very First Christmas is a great gift book, and a sweet read-aloud for your small people. Christian Focus is giving a copy away, so scroll down to enter!
