Synopsis

A long time ago, in a country far away, a star shone in the night sky and a baby boy was born . . . The First Christmas perfectly captures the wonder of the nativity and celebrates the Christmas spirit of giving and togetherness. Full of hope for the future and the joy of family, this is a classic picture book to share, year after year.
