He did pause, with a moment's irresolution, before he shut the door; and he did look cautiously behind it first, as if he half-expected to be terrified with the sight of Marley's pigtail sticking out into the hall. But there was nothing on the back of the door, except the screws and nuts that held the knocker on, so he said & pooh!' and closed it with a bang.

Being a Ghost Story of Christmas, commonly known as A Christmas Carol, is a novella by Charles Dickens, first published in London by Chapman & Hall in 1843 and illustrated by John Leech. A Christmas Carol recounts the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an elderly miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. After their visits, Scrooge is transformed into a kinder, gentler man.

A beautifully illustrated Christmas story presented in paperback for the first time. We've all heard the story of the three wise men who brought their gifts to Baby Jesus. But what about the camels who carried them? Here is the story of Humphrey the camel and his long, cold journey to Bethlehem. Humphrey has lost his blanket and schemes to acquire a new one. When the party reaches its destination, Humphrey is so drawn to the love surrounding Baby Jesus that he finds himself selflessly giving his new blanket to the Christ child. Carol Heyer's rich acrylic paintings showcase the quirkiness of the camel and add humor to the story. Here is a book that both entertains and informs without ever straying from the meaning of the holiday. Ages 4-8.

I fell victim to Pinterest and decided to wrap up 24 Christmas books and have the kids open one a day as an advent calendar this past Christmas season. I started wrapping up the books we already had in the bookshelf and Christmas bin and realized I would need a lot more. I found I had the standards - How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (Classic Seuss),Polar Express 30th anniversary edition and 'Twas the Night Before Christmas - but I wanted some that told the nativity and focused on the birth of Jesus as the basis of Christmas. We don't attend church every weekend and I wanted to remind my kids (5 and 8) about the real root of the holiday.

I found this book while searching and I am so glad we did! This is such a sweet approach to the nativity story, told from the point of view of Humphrey. Humphrey is a young camel in one of the three wise men's caravan. He's young and lazy and quite the complainer but he has a good heart that comes out in the end. The illustrations are absolutely charming and the story is adorable. It isn't beat you over the head religious but tells the story of the birth of Jesus with humor and a sense of wonder and awe. My kids absolutely loved it!

This was the one book that the kids went to over and over even with multiple other choices available - my 5 year old wanted us to read it every night along with the new selection. We love a lazy, slightly chilly camel named Humphrey and look forward to reading this one every year. Next year it will be the first one we open so we can enjoy it over and over!

What a delightful little book! As a pastor, I am always on the prowl for engaging little books to share with children about the nativity, especially on a "story time" and not Sunday School basis. The absolutely beautiful, splendidly detailed artwork captures the eye, and the addition of Humphrey's grouchy, egotistical voice helps turn the story away from the normal saccharine tellings of the baby in the manger. A sly turn of the story at the end is wonderful.

Of course, if you are looking for a thorough exegetical take, buy The Birth of the Messiah: A Commentary on the Infancy Narratives in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke (The Anchor Yale Bible Reference Library). And, yes, for those wishing for timeline precision (at least in some timelines) this book elides birth and prophetic narratives. This is a fun little retelling of the story with just enough poignancy to make it appropriate for a reverent birth story.

At our Christmas eve parties, I dress up as Santa's elf - ring the door bell with a bag of "small" wrapped gifts and a special book. I sit in a chair and tell them how excited I am to see them and that Santa is very pleased with them. I also share Jesus' love and affection for them. This book was a sweet take-it-slow book. The artistry is adorable! What a wonderful way to share God's love by giving a book every Christmas that they can cherish. This year I wrote a special note for each of them on paper with a special, genuine reflection of who they are. MERRY CHRISTMAS!! Added note: Read HUMPHREY'S First Christmas again!!! Kids and adults LOVE this book!

This was purchased to add to my 25 books of Christmas collection. My whole family ❤️s this story! My 3 year old loves the funny camel! My 9 year old daughter loves the illustrations and the funny story. And my husband and I absolutely love the the way it combines all these things into the true spirit of Christmas with the ending, he literally teared up at end which is SO unlike him! I will certainly be searching for more books form this author. Couldn't be happier with purchase!

The Humphrey books are so great! As a children's minister, I got them to mix up how we tell the stories. I really love this First Christmas one. It has humor in all the right spots. The "moral" of the story is moving and theologically sound. I recommend this book to anyone.

What a cute story! Humphrey is so cold after his blanket is lost and when he finally gets the attention of his owner and is given a new blanket he finds a baby with no blanket and he shares it (baby is Jesus). Cute pictures and one of my favorite Christmas books.

A wonderful story of a camel who is angry he lost his blanket to keep him warm. He is finally happy when his owner finds him a blanket. When they arrive at the manger of baby Jesus, Humphrey realizes this is no ordinary baby and decides to give him his treasured blanket. A great story about love at Christmas time. While "santa" books are fun and festive, this contributes more to the real meaning of Christmas.
When first flipping through the book, i loved the illustrations but was uncertain that the story line was worth keeping. A few days later I had enough time to sit alone and read it, and ended up tearing up. Yes Humphrey is grumpy and selfish, but aren't many of us, especially through the seasonal stress. Ultimately, Humphrey figured out the meaning of Christmas and brought laughs along the way, and joyful tears at the end. Reviewing actually makes me want to pull it out and read it again! This is a book I would gift to nieces and nephews or grand children and Christmas, and is fun to read aloud in funny voices and share illustrations to the whole family.
