The First Christmas Night review and GIVEAWAY

**UPDATE**  Winner!  Joy2bMom, please contact me to claim your book!  Congratulations!


I have a beautiful book to share with you today!  The First Christmas Night was written by Keith Christopher, who has a background in music, and the breathtaking illustrations were done by Christine Kornacki, who also illustrated The Sparkle Box.


Written in a rhyming style that mimics 'Twas The Night Before Christmas, this book is a lovely retelling of the birth of Christ.  Another great offering from Ideals Books, this one is intended for ages 4-8, although it can easily be enjoyed by those both younger and older.  This hardcover book with dust jacket has a retail price of $16.99.   You can connect with Ideals Books on Facebook.


If you would like to WIN a copy of this book, please leave a comment.  If you would like a second entry, please follow me on Pinterest, and leave your Pinterest user name in your comment.  I will have one of my lively assistants draw a name on Wednesday, November 27.  Please make sure I can contact you if you win!  If you do not respond by Saturday, I will need to pick a new winner, to make sure the book reaches it's owner before Christmas!

  14. I would love to win this book for Alyssa as a Christmas present. We have a tradition every year - I buy a new Cheistian Christmas book for her to open on Christmas Day. I also wrap a figurine of Baby Jesus in a special box for her to open and then I retell the story of Jesus's birth. If I won this book, then I could read it aloud every year. Thank you for the chance. tlm swt 2000 (at) msn (dot) com. Christmas is my favorite holiday and I adore Christian Christmas books. I am trying to build up our collection so that what we read focuses on the true meaning of the.season.
