I’d like to thank Christian Focus Publications for sending me The Very First Christmas in return for my honest review.
Do you want to teach your kids about the very first Christmas in a way they’ll understand?
Do you want to raise kids who know that we celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day?
Are you looking for a way to explain the gospel to your toddlers and preschoolers?
There are some great resources out there, and I highly recommend The Very First Christmas by Catherine MacKenzie as one you’ll want to have in your home library for the Christmas season.
The First Christmas for Your Kids
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.
“I remember your first Christmas. We said, ‘You’re here at last. We had waited for you for sooo long.
On the very first Christmas another baby was born. The world had been waiting for Jesus, God’s Son, for many years.
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. You can purchase The Very First Christmas here.
