The First Christmas Night
Written by: Keith Christopher
Illustrated by: Christine Kornacki
Publisher: Ideals Books
Hardcover: 32 Pages

What a beautiful written story of the first Christmas night. Keith Christopher did a wonderful job telling the true story of Christ birth. The story is told  in the same lyrical telling of "Twas the night Before Christmas". The story begins with the arrival of Mary and Joseph in Bethlehem and then moves through Christ birth, with the angels ans shepherds and the visit of the wise men. This is a wonderful book to read to your children. I loved it. The illustrations are wonderful your child will love looking at the pictures.

Keith Christopher is an award-winning composer, arranger, lyricist and author, and his musical talent is evident in the lyrical verses of  The First Christmas Night, In addition to writing and producing, Keith is on the faculty at the Blair School of Music of Vanderbilt University in Nashville. He lives in Hendersonville, Tennessee, with his wife and two children.

Christine Kornacki at a very early age developed love for painting and bringing stories to life.After receiving a BFA in illustration from the University of Hartford her dreams of illustrating children's books began to take shape, including illustrating the best-selling The Sparkle Box for Ideals Children's Books. She spends her days painting in her studio, which adjoins a charming cafe in New Haven, Connecticut.
