It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! It’s December – up goes the Christmas tree and out come the Christmas books! We’ve added to our existing Christmas book stash with a couple of new books including one of our lift-the-flap favourites in board book style for the littlest (and most destructive) addition to our family. It’s time for the Christmas 2019 Children’s Book Roundup!
Disclosure – these books were provided to Blog of Dad free of charge for the Children’s Book Roundup. For further information, please visit my disclosure statement.
The Lonely Christmas Tree – Chris Naylor-Ballesteros
High on a hill above town stood a tree, long ago a part of a huge forest home but now all alone. In the town below, other trees nestled all snug and aglow, twinkling with decorations and the anticipation of Christmastime. The lonely tree only dreamt of the magic below. Luckily, old Saint Nick had plans for this tree.
The Lonely Christmas Tree is a lovely Christmas tale with pretty, classical illustrations of snowy Christmas scenes.
We’re Going On An Elf Chase (Board Book) – Martha Mumford and Laura Hughes
We had loads of fun with We’re Going On An Elf Chase last year. This year we have the board book version for our new addition to enjoy, with his chunky hands, less than precise hand manoeuvres, and (extremely) destructive tendencies. Hannah is loving reading this fun rhyming story with him and helping him lift the flaps to find all the elves.
I’m Ready for Christmas – Jedda Robaard
A part of the new I’m Ready board book series, I’m Ready for Christmas features an excited little wombat getting ready for her favourite day of the year. With street parties, barbecues and picnics, Christmas decorations, wrapping presents, family and reflecting on the year that’s been, I’m Ready for Christmas is bound to put you in a Christmas frame of mind. The adorable illustrations of quintessential Australian scenes with native Australian characters are a knockout.
