The First Christmas Night by Keith Christopher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I agreed to review this book thinking it would be a nice book to give to the toddler that I babysit. NO WAY!! I love this book! The artwork is stunning and the poem is so classic, yet, I like it SO much better than the original "Twas the Night Before Christmas" poem.
"Twas the very first Christmas,
when all through the town
not a creature was stirring-
there was not a sound.
The moon, shining bright
in the heavens so high,
gave the luster of midday
to the Bethlehem sky."
If this book didn't distinctly say "ideals children's books" I would give these as gifts to adults!
The poem is recreated flawlessly, it's not a corny knock off and I just can't get over how beautiful the artwork is!!!
This book will proudly set on my bookshelf, safe from kids crayons and rough little fingers!
