First Words of Christmas

WorthyKids. Oct. 2023. 20p. Board $7.99. ISBN 9781546005353.
Toddler-PreS–An adaptation of the biblical story of the birth of Jesus. When laid flat, the left page has a sentence propelling the story forward with one word in the sentence bolded. The right page has an image of the word that was bolded—for example, the word “star” with a digital rendering of the subject. Words have been chosen carefully and the smiling images of all present at the birth, including the various animals, make this a sweet choice for young patrons. Digital images help make the book more appealing, with subdued colors and soft lines.
