Just like last year, we are enjoying a book advent calendar this December. Don’t worry we still have a chocolate one too. I love our book one though and so does F. I have a box of 24 Christmas children’s books and each night I wrap one in some festive fabric and leave it under the tree. F loves discovering the book each morning. The books are some we’ve collected over the years and some from our local library. We’ve also been sent these lovely new books from some publishers this year.
We love Winnie and Wilbur in our house after I introduced F to the collection this October. We regularly read new books from this series at our local library. As soon as I discovered there was a Christmas Winnie and Wilbur adventure, I knew that F would love it. As soon as she unwrapped the book she recognised Winnie on the front cover. Winnie is preparing for Christmas but on Christmas Eve, Santa gets stuck in the chimney and Winnie needs to help him deliver all the gifts in time. This lovely book has the usual colourful and detailed illustrations and is packed with funny antics like crashing into cakes and getting tangled in fairy light. I know that we are going to enjoy reading this book each December for many years to come.
The animals of Pear Tree Farm love to vote and in this book, they are voting for Christmas, only turkeys never vote for Christmas except for Timmy Turkey. Timmy longs to celebrate Christmas and sets about campaigning for Christmas. I love that there are lots of jokes for adults scattered throughout the book too. The illustrations are lovely too.
This is another beautifully illustrated book based on the classic song Walking in a winter wonderland by Peggy Lee. There is also an accompanying CD with a recording of the song as well as a read through of the book and an interactive listening game. The illustrations are colourful and inviting for young children. A beautiful book that both my girls adore.
In this book, a brother and sister wish for a monster for Christmas but their parents aren’t convinced. The illustrations are bright and colourful and the story is a funny parody of the song “We wish you a Merry Christmas”. A really fun festive read that young children will enjoy.
