Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Including the story of the Nativity and Good King Wenceslas, My Very First Christmas by Lois Rock, illus. by Alex Ayliffe, features 11 tales for the very young. Ayliffe's cut-paper collages compliment the simple, calming storytelling style. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Ten tales tell the real story of the Christmas holiday, as well as some of the traditions and customs that are associated with it. There is the story of Mary and Joseph and the birth of Jesus, and also the tale of the wise men (including the fourth one who brings a most unusual gift). Others stories that may not be as familiar to American children are the ones about Little Brigid who helped Mary tend the newborn babe and was rewarded with a new cloak, Baboushka who delayed going to Bethlehem and ended up taking with her a basket of gifts that she left at each house along the way whenever she heard a child laughing. The story of Good King Wenceslas who brought happiness to his poor subjects, and the baker who made gingerbread cookies for his friends and neighbors round out the collection. The drawings are simple and have plenty of kid appeal. The closing pages contain a glossary of Christmas words.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Modern language and multicultural characters are featured in 10 short stories, many of which will be recognizable to children. Selections include "Good King Wenceslas," "Baboushka," and "Wise Men and a Star." Cheerful illustrations in bold colors on white background will hold the attention of young listeners, and the large type will encourage beginning readers, although words like "myrrh" and "frankincense" will provide a challenge. No source notes are provided, and some of the selections are awkwardly written, making this an additional purchase.-Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
This collection of short stories set in large type will work well for younger children as a read-aloud or for beginning readers who are ready for something longer than a standard-length easy reader. The first three stories cover the Annunciation to Mary, the journey to Bethlehem, the Nativity sequence and the visits from the shepherds and the Wise Men. The next six chapters are retellings of traditional stories that relate to Christmas, such as "The Tree of Bethlehem," "The Fourth Wise Man," "Baboushka" and "Good King Wenceslas." In "The Little Juggler," a monk juggles in front of a statue of the Christ Child, and in "The Baker's Christmas," a baker's loaves turn into dough children who inspire a change of heart in the baker. Simple illustrations in cut-paper collage use bright colors and uncluttered design to unify the volume. Each story has a defining icon at the top of its pages to help children see when the story has changed to the next subject. A glossary defines key words relating to Christmas used throughout the work. (Picture book. 3-8)
