Even though everywhere is frantic these days it is wonderful to find time to read children’s Christmas books. This small selection are some of my all time favourites. Not trailers but just beautiful books to share over the festive season.

All time favourite  and even though my copy is all yellowed, spotty and old, I still love it.

The littlest angel
By Charles Tazewell

The littlest angel is only 4 years old and always late for choir and his halo is always slipping off.

This is an absolutely delightful classic. Originally a Little Golden Book.


       The night before Christmas

          By C. Moore and  illustrated by Robert Ingpen

         The illustrations in this version of the classic Christmas story are beautiful, bright and visually stunning.

The best Christmas present in the world

By Michael Morpurgo, illustrated by Michael Foreman

Michael Morpurgo never fails to impress. Here “It’s Christmas 1914 in the trenches of  the Western front. And something wonderful has just happened”. Based on that most famous war-time christmas day, this book is lovely. Even amongst the most awful of times  miracles can happen. Love it!
