Review: The First Noel - A Christmas Carousel

Looking for something different in a Christmas book this year? Well, you're in luck.

Telling the story of Christmas, as told by the Bible, this book comprises five pages, which stand together to create a carousel of red, white, gold and green.

There are no illustrations in this book, instead showcasing a series of white pop-up cutouts in the cardboard pages. Scene after scene of angels, the manger, three wise men and other nativity scenes, stand before you making a gorgeous Christmas display and a story to read to your children to help teach them (in a very concise version of the Bible) the meaning of Christmas.

This will become a special keepsake to bring out each year.
