The Best Festive Books for Pre-Schoolers
Books are a huge part of our lives, with Mr J and I both being avid readers, and little A has also picked up that trait. We regularly read with him and with Christmas coming up, we've been turning our attention to finding some great festive reads that he can really enjoy and interact with.
THE LITTLE CHRISTMAS TREE I was so impressed by this book, which isn't only a beautiful Christmas story featuring the animals of Emerald Wood, but doubles as a beautiful room decoration with a tree that your child can decorate. It comes with 27 pop-out decorations that they can put on their very own tree, and also with the characters of the story. Archie's a little young as the decorations can be quite fiddly but I've set the tree up on display in his room and he loves it!
CONVERTIBLE TRACTOR BOOK & PLAYMAT Though it's not exactly a festive read, this convertible tractor book & playmat would make an amazing gift for any young children. Archie plays with his regularly, and can never decide whether he prefers it as a playmat or a tractor. It's been great for learning, as A pushes his car along the roads and I can ask him to point out the numerous animals and characters; Our book is from Miles Kelly.
SOCKS FOR SANTA Part of a series, with predecessors such as Marshmallows for Martians and Spaghetti with the Yeti, this book is gorgeously illustrated and an awesome rhyming story about a boy called George on his journey to take Santa some presents. It's a mesmerising read and short enough for toddlers to enjoy.
POP-OUT & PLAY NATIVITY This book is fab if you want to start introducing the story of Mary and Joseph to your little ones. It's a simplified version of the tale and features all of the pop-out characters that you can place wherever you want in the stable at the back of the book. Little one's will really enjoy getting stuck in and hearing this version of the religious story.
