The First Christmas by Jan Pienkowski (Puffin, £5.99)

The Nativity is retold in the rich language of The King James Version of the bible in this beautifully illustrated festive offering. Using an intricate style of dark silhouettes against a range of colourful backdrops, the book has a delicate, genteel feel that is full of respect for its subject matter. The illustrations are rich and evocative, with beautifully crafted typography, creating the humility of the baby Jesus’s stable birth and the lively succession of visitors, followed by the dramatic flight from King Herod into Egypt. Perfect for getting children in the mood for the biggest show of the school year.
