Many children's Christmas books are long on fancy and short on fact. Most of them ignore the themes of the first Christmas and opt instead for fairy tale settings or winter tableaus. The Very First Christmas, a Gold Medallion Book Award winner, fills the gap by presenting fresh insights into the Christmas story from both the scriptural and secular context.
The book tells the story of a young boy named Christopher who no longer wants to hear fairytales—he only wants real bedtime stories. So his mother tells the amazing and miraculous story of Jesus' birth. Along the way, Christopher learns the answers to some challenging questions about the Christmas story. And all the answers are right from the Bible. Paul L. Maier, best-selling author, says “this book answers the real questions children ask about the nativity story.”
This book makes a wonderful gift for children, families, and friends!
