Red House Reader Review

Reader review: The First Christmas - Other - 9781447266204
James Manning
Red House Reviewer

The First Christmas' is a lovely book, telling a very simple version of the Christmas story and birth of Jesus. It is well illustrated and ideal for toddlers, with the story broken down into simple chunks and all the main characters are well featured. The book is different to most Christmas children's books as there is no Santa and no shiny and glittery pages – strange for many children for the time of year! James expected it to be filled with Santa, but he actually enjoyed listening to the story. He is almost three years old and is beginning to listen and understand more, but up until this point I think the book would not have held his interest. The book is written by Rod Campbell, the same author as 'Dear Zoo' and is in the same simple and easy to understand style, perfect for little people! I’m sure we will read this book again and again!
