The First Chirstmas is a short but nicely presented storybook about the birth story of Christ. With precious illustrations that show Mary and Joseph as child-like plus easy to read text narrated by a professional child voice-artist, this Christmas story is one that will engage children and please parents equally. Text highlights as narrated, helping to reinforce language learning. The book has no animation but does have lightly interative elements - mostly sound effects for the animals in the barn. Perfect for children learning about the religious background for the celebration of Christmas.
