Review of The First Christmas
4 stars By Laura, Nov 02 2012
This hard cover book, (approx 15cm square), retells the Christmas Story with a good level of detail using dialogue. 
The illustrations are beautiful and soft, I feel slightly feminine with the inclusion of iris flowers, deer and doves, I bought this book with my daughter in mind.
