The Lovereading4Kids comment

A clearly written telling of the story of the birth of Jesus and how a bright star guides the shepherds, the angels and the three kings to the lowly stable where he is born.


The First Christmas by Georgie Adams

Early Readers are stepping stones from picture books to reading books. A blue Early Reader is perfect for sharing and reading together. A red Early Reader is the next step on your reading journey. The story of the birth of Jesus and the first Christmas re-told with delightful simplicity, and illustrated with charming soft watercolours. Both text and pictures are designed to make this the perfect introduction to the Nativity story for very young children.

About the Author

Georgie Adams

Georgie Adams lives in Cornwall with her artist husband. She spent many years working as an editor of children's books before she became a writer of books for the very young.

Georgie writes...

'I was born in Tunbridge Wells, Kent and we lived in the country, surrounded by horses, hop fields and orchards. I was pony mad and lucky enough to have ponies of my own. My very first pony was a shaggy Shetland called Muffet.

I’m married to an artist. We live in Cornwall, not far from the rugged North Cornwall coast – a great place for inspiration. I have two daughters, three stepchildren and one lazy cat called Miss Molly, who likes to sleep in the airing cupboard. I have several young nieces too, and they are among my most critical and demanding reviewers!'

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
