Books for Christmas

IMG_3613Looking for books about the Christmas story? These are a few of my favourites.

‘No Tree for Christmas’ by Marilyn Lashbrook illusrated by Stephanie McFetridge Britt. (ISBN 9781859857069)

This book is ideal for younger children. There are phrases to repeat and great pictures. (Not too sure that there would have been pigs in a stable in Bethlehem but I don’t think children would worry about this!)

My First Story of Christmas by Tim Dowler. Illustrated by Roger Langton. (ISBN 9781859856574)

Another great book for young children designed as a gift book for 4-7 year olds. I love the fact that this book accurately depicts the shepherds coming to the stable and the wise men to the house a few years later. The wise men were never at the stable! Great illustrations with lots of detail and suitable humour.

This strory/puzzle book with four pages of stickers would make a good stocking filler or a small gift for Sunday School children. Rather than retelling the Christmas Story the book includes the Bible references. There are puzzles throughout. The stickers can be added to the line drawn pictures which the child can colour in.
