Reviews - What do customers think about My First Story of Christmas?
My First Story of Christmas Jan 9, 2007
My First Story of Christmas is a sweet, easy to understand, and Biblically correct book. The illustrations are positive and child-friendly, and work well with the text. The pace of the book is also good for kids who can sometimes be unattentive with long stories.
A Christmas Story for Kids. Sep 26, 2004
MY FIRST STORY OF CHRISTMAS is a book geared towards younger children that tells the story of Jesus' birth. The book is written in a very simple and straitforward manner. Other than the usual vocabulary associated with Christmas (manger, shepherds, etc.) the words aren't difficult and should be understood by most children. Also, unlike many Christmas stories that have the shepherds and wise men arriving at the same time to the stable where Jesus was born, this story is more Biblically accurate as it illustrates the wise men arriving to see and worship Jesus several years after He was born. Roger Langton's illustrations that accompany the text are smooth, warm, and comforting; appealing the children's need for security. My only criticism about the book is that until the last page there is no mention why Jesus' birth was necessary; why it was so special. Other than that, this is a wonderful book telling the story of Christmas for young children.
