“the first christmas night” book giveaway

first christmas night

Tonight, I’ll be drawing the winner of The Sparkle Box giveaway from last week. (Be sure to enter if you haven’t already!) Meanwhile, I have another new book to share, which was also illustrated by Christine Kornacki. Her rich oil paintings in The First Christmas Night are so clear and beautiful that they look like photographs!

The First Christmas Night is the story of the birth of Jesus, written in poetic verse. It begins with Mary and Joseph entering the stable, and includes the visits of the shepherds and wise men to see baby Jesus. It really is the perfect book to share with your children year after year during the Advent season.

About the Author: “Keith Christopher is a composer, arranger, orchestrator, and educator, and he has served as editor and producer for several major music publishers. In addition to writing and studio producing, Keith served 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.”

About the Illustrator: “At a very early age, Christine Kornacki developed a 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.  She spends her days painting in her studio, which adjoins a charming cafe in New Haven, Connecticut.”
