The First Christmas Ever by Dennis Jones
When I was given the opportunity to review this book, I was excited to have a new Christmas book for the kids. While we aren't of the mindset that Santa is wrong and we do "do" Santa, we naturally want to focus as much as possible on the true meaning of Christmas. I love how Zonderkids kept this story so simple, but the message was very clear. My husband also liked that the wise men came at the proper time in the story, because it irks him when people say the wise men were at the manger.
The kids enjoyed the illustrations, although I almost felt like it was a mockery of the story at times...almost like they were caricatures rather than illustrations. It wasn't a deal breaker though, and the story made up for it.
