About forty years ago the first books I bought my firstborn child were Dick Bruna’s – Miffy, Poppy Pig and I Can Count. So how excited was I to win a copy of The Christmas Book from my friend The Book Chook !
Last night after taking Small to see some Christmas Lights and particularly the magnificent display and ‘festival’ at the Sandgate Uniting Church , it seemed most fitting that our bedtime story should be the story of Christmas as told by Bruna.
With a simplified but engaging text and Bruna’s signature illustrative style, this is such a charming book – and timeless. First published in 1964, there is no doubt it is just as appealing to today’s audience as those of fifty years ago.
Share the joy and reason for the season with a little one you know with this beautiful book and
