12 Days of Christmas Reading!

I love getting mail through the letterbox and always have done. Due to technology and the ease of emails, I get less mail now than ever. My children get especially excited when birthday and Christmas cards arrive as it is something to open. The books on today’s blog increase the enjoyment of the books and reading by adding the exciting element of mail to open!

Cleverly designed, all three of these books, have post to open. My two have loved all of these books this week, even my 11yo. There is something so fun about opening a package, a card or even reading a postcard.

Staying with the Christmas theme, these would be perfect for younger readers, although don’t be surprised if older children and grown ups love them too!

One of the newest editions to our Christmas collection is set to become a classic. The Crayons are world renowned, popular with children and parents alike. Uniquely told from the crayons perspective, this series is brilliant. We welcome the crayons back in this Christmas special. Letters and packages are arriving for the crayons, causing huge excitement in the build up to Christmas. Readers get to open these and find out what treasures have been sent and who they are from. Christmas is a time for giving and for remembering far away family and friends. This book reminds us of the importance of those we love and showing them this love.
