I love switching up Evie’s bookshelves. She is absolutely obsessed with books, and from the moment she gets up she raids her bookshelves and presents us with a book to read to her.
As it’s Christmas, I thought I’d share with you what’s currently on the ‘front row’ of Evie’s bookshelf.
There are so many great Christmas picture books to choose from. I seriously had to stop myself from getting carried away.
We’ve been reading these Christmas themed books everyday so far in December, and it’s already started to prove worthwhile. She can now say Santa and Reindeer, and she recognises objects like snowmen and Christmas trees when we’re out and about.
Just before hitting publish on this post, we were sent three more books by the lovely people at Edgmont Publishing, to add to our Christmas bookshelf. They are so lovely, I just had to add them to this post.
We were sent ‘Pop-Out and Play Nativity Story’, ‘Socks for Santa’ and ‘The Little Christmas Tree’.
‘Socks for Santa‘ is about George, a fearless little hero who ventures to the North Pole to make sure Santa gets some presents for a change. He meets lots of characters on his quest and his woolly socks end up saving the day! Doesn’t it sound sweet?
‘Pop-Out and Play Nativity Story‘ is equally lovely and is perfect for introducing children to the Nativity story. It follows Mary and Joseph through Bethlehem and at the end you can make your very own Nativity scene with a pop out stable! This would be such a great book to set out on display every Christmas!
Lastly we were sent ‘The Little Christmas Tree‘, a heart-warming Christmas story about children that have decorated all of the trees in Emerald Wood just in time for Christmas, but one tree has been forgotten. The animals set about making the tree a spectacular success before Christmas morning.
What’s even more adorable is that when you’re done reading, you can pop out some pieces and decorate your own pop-up tree, just like the animals in the story!
These interactive books really bring Christmas to life and are perfect for kids of all ages. Here are some other titles that you’ll find on our bookshelf this Christmas:
The Perfect Gift – When Little Squeak loses Big’s present he worries that their Christmas will be ruined. Big is quick to reassure him that all is not lost. As they get ready for Christmas, Little Squeak learns about the most precious gift of all, being with each other.
Zoe and Beans: Zoe’s Christmas List – Zoe knows exactly what she wants for Christmas, and to make sure Father Christmas does too, she and Beans take a trip across the Arctic all the way to the North Pole. But with a baby polar bear to rescue and a swirling snowstorm to contend with, will they ever make it?!
The Gruffalo’s Child – This is the beautiful sequel to the famous book ‘The Gruffalo’. It follows the Gruffalo’s child as it explores the deep dark wood looking for the clever little mouse. It’s a must for any bookshelf!
Can You Say It Too? Jingle! Jingle! – This book is perfect for toddlers learning to talk. The lift the flaps make reading fun and it’s a great book for getting your toddler to repeat words and to teach them about Christmas characters.
Santa’s Sleigh: A Fun Christmas Counting Book – Is an interactive book with a ready-to-turn wheel. it’s a busy night in the North Pole as the elves help Santa pack the sleigh, but with every load of goodies, the sleigh becomes heavier and heavier. How many reindeer will be needed to ensure that all the gifts are delivered to all the children on time?
Santa is Coming to Cornwall – This book can be personalised to your local county which makes it even more magical. In our version it follows Santa as he makes his way to Cornwall. Unfortunately he gets lost on the way, but luckily the newest littlest reindeer saves the day!
