Tonight’s books are perfect for all, but especially for very young readers. Two are in board book style and one hardback make them a sturdy addition to your book collections!

We’re Going on an Elf Chase
Written by Martha Mumford, Illustrated by Laura Hughes
Published by Bloomsbury

In the style of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, this puts us in a Christmas spirit as we hunt for Elves along the way! With stunning winter scenes, lift the flaps and actions to join in with, this is a fun book to read with toddlers and young children. Reinforcing counting to ten, getting ready for bed on Christmas Eve and the joy of surprises on Christmas morning. A complete joy!

Just Right for Christmas
Written by Birdie Black, Illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw
Published by Nosy Crow

I adore the sentiment in this book with each scrap of cloth finding the perfect home from the tallest to the smallest! From cloaks to jackets to gloves and a scarf, everyone makes a gift for someone they love! Handmade, wrapped with love and placed under a tree for Christmas morning. Repetitive language allows younger readers the chance to participate and predict what is coming next. Beautifully illustrated, this is one to share wide and far!

Marvin and Marigold A Christmas Surprise
Written by Mark Carthew, Illustrated by Simon Prescott
Published by New Frontier

A large box of special decorations and a tree arrive for Marigold. Feeling excited until she sees neighbour Marvin alone in his home. With Christmas spirit abounding, she invites him to help and they spend a happy afternoon and evening together looking at the decorations, sharing cheese and company. It would be perfect to read when your family shares the tradition of decorating the tree together. Reminiscing about old ornaments, handmade specials and ones belonging to grandparents is one of our favourite parts of getting ready. A beautiful story to share.
