FrontGate Media Blog Tour: Once Upon The Very First Christmas by Rory Feek and Illustrated by Christine Cuddihy

Bestselling author and songwriter Rory Feek takes children and families on a beloved journey to Christmas past in Once Upon the Very First Christmas. On a picturesque farm, schoolchildren gather their homemade costumes and props and put on a heartwarming Christmas play for the community. As they don halos for the angel choir or round up sheep for the final nativity scene, readers will be immersed in the greatest blessings of Christmas—the gift of Jesus—and be reminded that we can rejoice together in the wonder of the season.

  • Rory's soothing and lyrical retelling of the Christmas story
  • is paired with magical illustrations by Christine Cuddihy of a homemade Christmas play,
  • is perfect for ages 0 to 4
  • is a great gift for Christmas, baby showers, and baptisms.

Take a moment to slow down this Advent and Christmas to treasure that first Christmas, God's gift of Jesus, and every precious moment He's given you to celebrate with family and friends.

I truly believe reading to Children is a wonderful time and a privilege. The Birth of Jesus and the Christmas story is also an important story to be told to Children. The Very First Christmas by Rory Feek is a brand new book that does both of these. 

I truly enjoyed this book and read it to a group of Kids at our Church. I really like that the story is written in a way for kids to understand and to keep their attention. The reading of the book reminds me of the days I participated in the Christmas Pageant at Church growing up. The Illustrations are BEAUTIFUL and Colorful. The Little ones at Church really enjoyed the book and I LOVED reading it to them! 

I HIGHLY recommend this book for Families and for Church Kids Ministries! GREAT BOOK!
