The Lovereading4Kids comment

Short and simple text on each spread combines with some eye-catching and enchanting illustrations for parents to reveal the story of christmas to young children everywhere. It's the perfect present for a child's first Christmas, which will be treasured, read and re-read throughout their toddlerhood and as they become newly independent readers too.


The Very First Christmas by Louie Stowell

Presents the story of the First Christmas in a picture book format. Beautifully illustrated by Elena Temporin, this book introduces young children to the Christmas story. It is ideal for both beginning and developing readers as the carefully written text can be read aloud to very young children or read independently by more confident readers.
