    good explanation of Christmas for kids

    This book gives good explanations about aspects of the biblical Christmas story that can be difficult for kids to understand (such as, why didn't Joseph and Mary go to a motel rather than a stable?). The illustrations are gorgeous. Although this book seems to be written for an evangelical-Christian audience I think non-Christian kids would easily understand it too. I highly, highly recommend this book. It is just a *little* beyond my 5 year old's comprehension, so I think it would be best for ages 6 and above.

    The Very First Christmas was given to my family as a gift when I was a child. We loved to snuggle up and hear the real story of christmas. I now plan to share the book with my children and pass it out to my friends who have children.It is really a great book.
