Help your children prepare for their hearts for Jesus with The First Christmas by Janice D. Green.
Beautifully told and stunningly illustrated, The First Christmas tells the story of Christ’s miraculous birth. Each page in this wonderful book starts by sharing what transpired in Biblical times, followed by a short series of questions posed to young readers to help connect them to what happened thousands of years before they were born. One example is when the author is sharing the story of Zechariah and Elizabeth. The questions below the Biblical story read, “If someone told you a very old lady was going to have a baby, would you believe it? How do you think Zechariah told his wife about the angel’s message without talking?”
What a perfect way to make young people feel like part of that very first Christmas. Even more so when you give them a wonderful family activity to enjoy afterwards, like this book does.
Green teamed up with internationally published illustrator Violet Vandor for this story. I hope to see them work together again, as the colors Vandor chose are beautiful and she captures the emotions of all the characters–human and animal–so well.
The First Christmas by Janice D. Green is a special treasure that your family will want to read time and again.
