Story Snug Advent – December 23rd: Is It Christmas Yet?

Big Bear is getting ready for Christmas with a very excited Ted in Is It Christmas Yet? by Jane Chapman.

The Story: An enthusiastic Ted cannot wait for Christmas and offers to help Big Bear with preparations. Present wrapping is particularly chaotic and then they go to look for the perfect Christmas tree. Unfortunately the tree is too big and as they try to get it inside it gets broken. But luckily they fix everything in time to enjoy Christmas.

Big Bear and Ted are gorgeous cuddly bears and their emotions are brilliantly portrayed in the illustrations. The scenes exude festivity and Big Bear’s expressions when Ted gets overexcited make us laugh. This Christmas board book is perfect for younger readers and parents and carers will all identify with Big Bear!

Our final illustration comes from a very special story…

Do you know who illustrated this retelling of The Christmas Story? Can you name the book?
