Lovingly illustrated by celebrated artist Frank Fraser, Thomas D. Williams’s magnificent poem First Christmas
tells of the monumental event that Christians have celebrated for more
than two thousand years: the birth of Jesus in a stable in Bethlehem.
with glorious angels, joyful shepherds, indifferent townspeople, humble
kings, delightful donkeys, cattle, sheep, and, of course, Joseph, Mary,
and the adorable baby Jesus, these this story leaves Santa Claus
behind and bring to vivid life the true story of Christmas.
If you love the classic poem “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” you’ll treasure First Christmas and place it at the center of your family’s annual Christmas celebrations.
