The classic nativity story The First Christmas is illustrated by Sophy Williams [ISBN: 978-0-7636-5013-1] in a 14 page magical changing picture book suitable for ages three to six. I personally appreciate this book for its religious story and plan to read it to my grandchildren. Too bad the world focus on so much secular materialism and loses sight of true meaning. Seeing pastel wise men, angels, shepherds, and the holy family unfold from the gatefold flaps is a delightful and eye-appealing way to gain the attention of young readers and listeners. Priced at $12.99, this book can be read year upon year as a family tradition.
Sophy Williams lives in Wiltshire, England, with her husband, Mark Robertson (also an illustrator), her two lively sons, Oscar and Leo, and a scraggy black cat. Some of Sophy’s childhood was spent living in Singapore, Hong Kong, and the Middle East, and her illustrations are often influenced by these far-flung locations.
