12 Days of Christmas Reading! Penultimate

Just two days left in this blog series. Thank you so much for all your positive comments and thoughts. It has been an intense two weeks of blogging and I have learned quite a lot! There are just a few books left in this series and they are all wonderful! Keep an eye out for the last in the series tomorrow!

The Twelve Unicorns of Christmas
Written by Timothy Knapman, Illustrated by Ada Grey
Published by Egmont

I had the pleasure of reading this before my daughter came home from school. She quickly grabbed it and in true 8yo style, started singing it to the tune of 12 days of Christmas. It worked for a few verses! A bright colourful book perfect for those unicorn loving children in your life. Adorable unicorns feature throughout and the originality is superb. Fun and Christmassy!

The Night Before The Night Before Christmas
Written by Kes Gray, Illustrated by Claire Powell
Published by Hachette

This is a charming rhyming story looking in Santa’s workshop as he and the elves prepare for Christmas. Everything’s going well, the elves are busy, the reindeer are awake and the sleigh is shining, so why does Santa feel as though he is forgetting something. Is it his dinner, has he crossed off his to do list? We have to wait until the last page to see what it is but the wait is worth it. Such a fun and humorous Christmas story. The details in the illustrations are phenomenal and we spent ages looking at them.

The Night Before Christmas and Other Festive Favourites
Illustrated by N. Puttapipat
Published by Walker Books

Featuring some Christmas classics like the famous poem by Clement C Moore, The Nutcracker and Jingle Bells. “Exquisitely Illustrated In Natee Puttapipat’s intricate silhouette style.” I could not have explained it more clearly or beautifully than the book itself. This is s book you must have to explore these incredible illustrations. The use of silhouette and colour is extraordinary. The Night Before Christmas is a highlight of the season for me and it is wonderfully brought to life in this book.
