The Christmas Story

What makes a book equally beloved by children and the adults who read to them? Is it the story itself? The illustrations? The words? Fortunately, this book checks all the boxes. After all, it’s not just a Christmas story; it’s the Christmas story.

The Christmas Story retells the story of Jesus’ birth, with charming illustrations that perfectly complement simple rhymes young children will soon memorize (and then take great delight in “reading” to you). Designed especially for toddlers and preschoolers, The Christmas Story is compact, sturdy, and a quick read.

A must-have for homes and classrooms, this storybook will be cherished at Christmas… and every other day of the year.

The Christmas Story is part of the First Look Devotional Series, a collection of books designed to give young children a first impression of their loving heavenly Father.

It is available at Orange and Amazon.

“This is a perfect book for your little ones! We use it in our pre-k Sunday School class. The story of Jesus’ birth is accurately told in an age-appropriate way that the children love, using colorful, child-friendly illustrations. The fact that it is a board book they can hold with pages they can turn is a bonus!”
