The Christmas Story

My First Message with CD

by Eugene Peterson illustrated by Rob Corley and Tom Bancroft


Stapled paperback with CD in pack
Publisher:Nav Press from IVP
A colourful slim book to read along with the CD or listen or read alone. Whichever way you do it, the words feature The Message, New Testament in Contemporary Language easily understood by the child. The CD is read with an American accent but children are so used to that it is not a distraction. With suggested questions on each page to ask as you read through and help with understanding, with prayers and activities to do, this is a family friendly tool for learning what Christmas is really all about.
