One of the best ways to get your children’s imagination running wild is through reading and Christmas time is a wonderful time to share the magic with a book.
We were asked to review some books from Red Shed and were over the moon when our parcel of beautiful books popped through the door.
The first one number three picked out was a heart warming story called ‘Socks For Santa’ about a little boy who was desperate to share his Christmas cheer by getting a present to Santa. His journey was not as easy as he had hoped for!
The illustrations were bright and cheery and she loved sharing the story with her younger brothers.
Next up was a book that explains the true meaning of Christmas in a fun way that younger children will be able to understand. With number four taking part in his first nursery play this book was perfect to help him get to know the story of the Nativity.
I love the addition of the pop out stable at the back of the book where the children can set up and play with their very own nativity scene.
My favourite book from our bundle though was ‘The Little Christmas Tree’. The beautiful story of the animals from Emerald Wood coming together to decorate the last forgotten tree is bought to life with a spectacular pop up Christmas tree.
My usually boisterous three year old sat patiently with me adorning the tree with all the pretty decorations and bringing the characters to life with the little cardboard animals.
This one is going to be a favourite that will be bought and and loved for many Christmases to come!
A book really is a gift that keeps on giving and any one of these would make a wonderful present that any child would love.
