I love Christmas books...I use the excuse that they are for my kiddo, but in all honesty, I love them for me as well. I'm always on the hunt for new books that tell the Christmas story.

The First Christmas Ever was a wonderful telling of the Christmas story. It was also very Biblically accurate. It drives me nuts when I see the wise men visiting baby Jesus at the stable, that isn't what is mentioned in the Bible, so I was thrilled to see this book portray Jesus at the right age.I know it's easier

The First Christmas Ever is a super cute Christmas book that I've enjoyed with my kids this year. It's a new spin on an old classic.

When I say new spin, the story is still the same. It's just written in a little bit more modern language and talks to kids in the way that they talk. It also embellishes on things that aren't really said in the Bible but we all assume like "All babies are special, but Mary's baby was extra special!"

Since we have a new baby in our house, my kids love all things baby.

The First Christmas took place in a stable with animals, a manger and hay. The reason for the first Christmas was the birth of Jesus. You might ask why this birth was so special. It is because Jesus would change the world forever.

This is a delightful 31-page soft-cover little booklet illustrated by Dennis Jones. It tells the story of Jesus’ birth through age 30, in simple everyday language that can easily be understood by children from ages 4-8. The illustrations are so adorable they will be su

Coming close to the Christmas celebration, every Christian home celebrates the birth of Jesus and this book complements the Christmas atmosphere. The First Christmas Ever retells us a story of Jesus’ birth. How Mary and Joseph looked for the place to stay. And the special night when the baby was born. The star was brightly shining.

I love the story…story of God’s love and His gift to us.

The pictures and artwork are amazing. A book can be as a keepsake or a great gift.

THE FIRST CHRISTMAS EVER is a sweet book depicting the biblical account of the Nativity. Children (ages 4 – 8) will love hearing the story of Mary and Joseph and the birth of Jesus. It is perfect to read to children as you set up your nativity scene, or tell the Christmas story around the tree, or even as a bedtime story.

I loved rereading this story, and the illustrations were well done. If you are looking for a true to the Bible retelling of the birth of Jesus, then be sure to pick up THE FIRS
