On the fifth day of Christmas my library gave to me…a book in an Advent Calendar-y.

Day 5

My poor rhyming skills aside in today’s Bookvent Calendar we got something with a more biblical bent.

5 - The First Christmas

The first Christmas / Rod Campbell

This simple, warm retelling of the Christmas story has easy-to-follow sentences and bright, appealing artwork, making it perfect for young children by the writer/illustrator that created Dear Zoo (a favourite).

And our special 35 Years of Cockburn picture is of Jandakot Airport.

5 - Jandakot Airport


I wonder what will be behind the window on day six…geese-a-laying perhaps?
