The First Christmas

Robbie Trent
pictures by Marc Simont

 Sometimes sweet and simple is best.  This book was originally published in 1948.  It tells the Christmas story in an easy to read way and ends with the hymn "Away in a Manger".  I thought the illustration style looked familiar and sure enough Marc Simont also did the pictures for The 13 Clocks.

 As much as I love elaborate illustrations, I also appreciate the simplicity of books like this.
