I’m not sure if asking you to consider buying Christmas books for your children is a Parenting Tips & Tricks thing to do!!!! Surely you already know that books are priceless and perhaps the best gift you could buy them 😮
But I am sure that recommending which books to buy (or some of my favourites, at least) is what giving good Parent Tips & Tricks is about.
So here are a list of some of my favourites and yes, they are all in the children’s bookcases (but in no particular order …. I think!):
The Christmas Kitten (embossed) – illustrated by Susanna Ronchi (Templar Publishing)
The Very Snowy Christmas by Diana Hendry & Jane Chapman (Little Tiger Press)
Hurry Santa – Julie Sykes & Tim Warnes (Little Tiger Press)
The Christmas Bear – Anne Mangan & Joanne Moss (Little Tiger Press)
Snowbert the Polar Bear – An Vrombaut (64 Zoo Lane series)
First Snow – Kim Lewis (Walker Books)
Threadbear – Mick Inkpen (Hodder Chidren’s Books)
All of the above are beautiful Christmas Books for Children – we have many more …
Some other favourites (not Christmas or snow related) but deserve a mention for the Christmas Stocking are:
The Best Gift of All – Jonathan Emmett & Vanessa Cabban (Walker Books)
How To Catch a Star – Oliver Jeffers
The Way Back Home – Oliver Jeffers
Lost and Found – Oliver Jeffers
In fact, just about anything that Oliver Jeffers writes is worthy of children and parent-child reading.
