One Christmas Wish by M Christina Butler & illustrated by Tina Macnaughton
Little Hedgehog and his friends want to find some snow to help the baby mice build some snow mice. They’re thrilled when they find some and are so generous in sharing it with others. But, once they arrive home, they discover all their snow is gone! They realise that even though snow is lovely, spending Christmas with their friends is even better!
Hedgehog’s velvety touch-and-feel hat adds something extra special to this sweet story.
Can’t See Santa by Mandy Archer & illustrated by Chris Jevons
It’s Christmas Eve and mouse is looking for Santa. He finds lots of partygoers and Christmassy traditions hidden around the house but there is no sign of Santa anywhere. Eventually, he is reminded that he needs to be asleep before Santa can come.
With twinkly lights, a cosy glow, gentle snow and cute woodland creatures, Can’t See Santa has a funny, festive feel. This lift-the-flap book is perfect for little hands to explore.
The Most Wonderful Gift in the World by Mark Sperring & illustrated by Lucy Fleming
On Christmas morning, Bear and Esme find a mysterious gift under the tree. There’s been a mix-up and Little Bunny Boo-Boo’s gift has been delivered to them by mistake! They set off to find her and encounter all sorts of challenges along the way.
This story is full of warnings and anticipation. Will they be able to find the bunny’s house? Will they make it there safely? With soft illustrations, lovely details and engaging colours, readers will be pulled right into the wonderful woods. The expressive onomatopoeia and emphasis on important words bring the text to life. Children will love to join in as the story is read again and again.
The Snowiest Christmas Ever by Jane Chapman
The Snowiest Christmas Ever is full of a bright, colourful Christmas glow and all the things we love at Christmas. The only thing Button Bear misses is snow. After waiting and waiting, it just might snow in time for Christmas.
This story is a lesson in being careful what you wish for! A little snow soon turns into a lot and the bear family are worried Santa won’t be able to visit. With just enough anticipation and concern, young readers will want to find out what happens next and if the perfect present of snow really is so perfect after all.
I Love You More Than Christmas by Ellie Hattie & illustrated by Tim Warnes
I Love You More Than Christmas is full of wonderful friends and many special Christmas traditions. As the animals get ready for the big day, there is so much to take in. There is a happy feeling in the house as friends and family gather to celebrate.
Throughout the story, a lovely song about all of the things they love about Christmas is repeated. But no matter how often they sing, they never get to the final line. What is it that they love more than all of the special Christmas traditions?
This story is a reminder that loved ones are the most important thing at Christmas. We don’t need all of the extras – we just need to tell each other how much we care.
