The First Night by B.G. Hennessy Illus Lou Fancher

Happy Christmas Eve! Here is another great book that has been reissued and that I have always loved. A friend of mine reminded me of this book as it is her favorite too!

The First Night by B.G. Hennessy is a beautifully simple retelling of the birth of Jesus. It has a quietness about it that reminds us of what Christmas is all about~the birth of a child.

This is a great book to read to children because it is not preachy at all. I used to read it at story time just for that reason. It told the Christmas story with simple phrases and lovely illustrations. This is a must have on any Christmas shelf.
