I wrote yesterday about the importance of learning to read and write and where it can take children. Not only is it great for their educational development, but it is a lovely opportunity to share time together, weather on a wet afternoon on the sofa or a bedtime story snuggled up together.
Today I am proud to share some classic Christmas books which will keep Children everywhere enchanted in the run up to Christmas.
The 4 books I have to share are all from Parragon Books Ltd, and part of the extensive range of Children’s books on their website.
The Night before Christmas £5.99
You can’t fail to be charmed by this long standing Christmas tale, I remember reading it to my own children when they were young and practically know the rhyming words off by heart as they would have me read it over and over throughout December. I will indeed be reading it once again to our Christmas guests this festive Eve.
Jingle Jingle Little Reindeer £3.99
This is a beautiful wooden book for younger children with a finger puppet reindeer on every page. A simple story for tots yet magical told in the right setting with the sensory benefit of the little puppet. It is one we have used with our holiday makers in the Fairy Garden where they have been transfixed as my daughter read.
Hans Christian Anderson £9.99
An all time classic that has stood the test of time being retold from generation t o generation. 8 of the most famous stories are included in this Parragon edition including my childhood favourite, The Ugly Duckling. This book has more writing and less illustration than many so better for age 6 and up and would make a wonderful Christmas present with a hard back cover.
Christmas 4000 stickers £10.99
A bumper activity book with plenty of stickers to keep active minds busy for hours. there is everything from dot the dot to spotting the odd one out and all on a Christmas theme. I’m sure I will be using some of these on our own Christmas Activity Hour here on the farm.
