The First Christmas is a great story for this time of year, written especially for young readers in this Early Reader by Orion books.
My daughter who is 5, picked this up as soon as it arrived and sat and read the entire book out loud to me. It really appealed to her being very topical for December, and something she could relate to as she is currently practicing for her school nativity. The First Christmas tells the story of Mary and Joseph on their journey to Bethlehem where their son Jesus is born. The shepherds and kings come to visit after following the bright star.
Early reader books make children feel more grown up reading and they love turning the page as they make their way through the book. To ease them into more advanced books, there are pictures on every page to keep them engaged in the storyline and help them understand what’s going on.
We love early reader books, and The First Christmas is no exception. Miss M enjoyed the story and it’s the perfect reading level for her. She is able to read most words and needs prompting on a few others. A great book for the festive period!
