This book houses a small collection of short stories, accompanied by photos, that are centred around Christmas, however they may surprise you with their untraditional Christmas content. A stolen car, a last minute purchase at the end of an unhappy honeymoon, and young boy snowbound with his sickly grandfather are just some of the scenarios you’ll find.
I read this book out loud to my 2 young children while they were playing and I enjoyed the fact they were long enough to entertain them for a little while, but not too long as to become chore some. However my children didn’t find the pictures included very interesting or relevant to the stories. I thought the stories themselves were lovely and send out a lovely message of what Christmas should be about, rather than the over commercialised and over indulgent holiday it has become. I’d recommend the book to anyone who loves Christmas or would like to read some Christmas stories to their children that contain the true spirit of Christmas. It would also make a lovely gift book!
