Are you reading any of your Christmassy picture books yet? We’ve read several new ones but have yet to get out our favourites from previous years. These are the books that we enjoyed reading last Christmas and include cats, rabbits, nursery rhyme and fairytale characters and an adorable big bear.
The Jolly Christmas Postman follows the same format as The Jolly Postman but in this story the postman is delivering festive greetings. During his round he makes a visit to Humpty Dumpty in hospital and eats mince pies with Little Red Riding Hood before getting a lift home in Santa’s sleigh.
Mog’s Christmas tells the story of a traditional family Christmas during which Mog, the cat, escapes from the festive preparations before coming down from the roof in a dramatic fashion!
In Snow Bunny’s Christmas Wish Snow Bunny sets off to deliver her letter to Santa. On the way she helps various animals and when she meets Santa her own Christmas wish is granted.
When It Snows is the beautifully illustrated story of a little boy’s magical, snowy Christmas journey which has a lovely twist at the end.
In Herman’s Letter Herman tries to deliver a letter to his best friend Henry but it is almost time to hibernate. Can he make it to Henry’s house in time? Will he be awake at Christmas?
Aliens Love Panta Claus is a very amusing, rhyming story about how the aliens help Father Christmas to deliver presents (and pants!).
