This year I have put together an advent book basket for Tom and we are loving it! I am sharing the books with you throughout December. Here is part 3!
Stick man by Julia Donaldson is one of my favourite picture books and lovely to read at this time of the year! For full book share and crafty ideas click here.
“Elmer in the snow” by David Mckee is a story about the classic character having fun in the snow. Elmer’s friends are moaning that it is very cold so Elmer takes them on a journey to discover snow and how much fun snow can be! Another classic Elmer story, welldone David McKee!
We really enjoy all the “Harry and the dinosaurs” books by Ian Whybrow and Adrian Reynold and this is another great story “Harry and the dinosaurs make a Christmas wish”. Harry is getting ready for Christmas and makes a Christmas wish, but will Santa deliver? For some dinosaur crafty ideas click here.
“Stories for Christmas” by Alf Proysen is a Christmas book from my childhood. This book has several story stories including three Miss Pepperpot stories. I loved Miss Pepperpot as a child so when I read it to Tom it brought back lots of memories. We read “Mr Pepperpot and the Christmas shopping”, this story is how she managed to get her husband to buy exactly what she wants for Christmas! Hehe! This version has few pictures so if I was buying I would buy a different copy but the stories are great!
“One snowy night” by M Christina Butler is another sweet snowy story! One cold snowy Christmas, Santa delivers a little red hat to a little hedgehog. Unfortunately it doesn’t fit so the hedgehog decides to “re-gift”, the hat goes on an adventure but eventually it turns out to be the best present ever! Another lovely wintery bedtime read!
“The dinosaur that pooped …..” by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter is a very popular series of stories in our house. “The dinosaur that pooped Christmas” is no exception. The story is about a boy called Danny who wants everything! Santa decides to give Danny a very hungry Dinosaur. The dinosaur eats up all of Christmas, but of course it must come out!!! Another fun story that children love!
We love Paddington by Michael Bond!!! “Paddington and the Christmas surprise” is another lovely Paddington story. Paddington and the Brown’s go to a large department store in London to visit Santa’s grotto, it doesn’t quite go as expected but Paddington does receive the perfect gift! I am totally in love with the Paddington movie, I make Tom watch it regularly!!!
Happy reading! xx
