We had lots more fun with our book Advent Calendar last week, it’s now only a week until Christmas Eve! Last week we had ice skating, clock watching, hide and seek, cycling and a very messy baking session. Snowy even jumped to the moon! We’re looking forward to seeing what surprises Snowy and Christmas bring in this last week before Christmas!
Does Splat get the very big Christmas present he is waiting for in Merry Christmas, Splat? He got one from Christmas and Snowy this morning (after they had done the washing up and somewhat haphazardly decorated the Christmas tree!).
Christmas and Snowy were waiting in the family ‘toadstool’ for Stick Man to return in time for Christmas. The three little sticks hope that it will be soon, they can’t wait to open their presents!
We found Christmas and Snowy looking inside a wardrobe, the question is whether the lion is fierce or friendly! We’ll have to read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Picture Book to find out!
Best friends like writing letters to each other, just like Herman and Henry in Herman’s Letter. We’re not sure if Snowy and Christmas have looked to see what is in the box though!
Weihnachten im Stall is Astrid Lindgren’s retelling of the Christmas story. Snowy and Christmas were watching the sheep when the angel came to tell them about the birth of baby Jesus.
A sleigh ride above London with Father Christmas just like Katie in Katie’s London Christmas!
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle All the Way! Snowy and Christmas are hoping that carrying lots of bells will keep the cat away like it did for the mice in Jingle Bells. This is a very special copy of the book signed by author / illustrator Nick Butterworth. The question is – when did Snowy and Christmas meet him?!
Christmas and Snowy hung their stockings up and put food out for the reindeer a little bit early. The Night Before Christmas is the book that we like to read after we have hung up our stockings on Christmas Eve.
