Baby’s First Christmas

by Christina Goodings illustrated by Stephen Barker


Board book
Price: £3.99
Published:September 2011
Chewable, readable, enjoyable. This is for tiny babies experiencing their first Christmas but too young to listen to a ‘proper’ story. One word and one figure or item on each page, Christina still manages to tell the Christmas story adequately with the help of Stephen Barker’s simple illustrations. It is never too young to tell children the real meaning of Christmas.
