The First Christmas Night

Book Review And Giveaway–The First Christmas Night by Keith Christopher Illustrated by Christine Kornacki

Well first of all I find it very coincidental that both the Author and Illustrator have Christ in their names. Ok on to the book.We were very fortunate to receive a copy of this book from the publisher to not only review but to giveaway to one of you lucky people.Trust me the winner of this giveaway will not be disappointed in the least.  To start with the artwork and yes it has to be classified as artwork is simply beautiful. The rich detail and realism of these pages are not something you would normally see in a so called “children’s” book.They are in fact oil paintings created by one Christine Kornacki a true artistic talent.
