Friday 8 December 2023


 It is safe to say we are definitely a house of bookworms. My love for books and reading has been passed down to the girls and they love switching up the books every season.

We have been to the library and picked up some new festive books for this December as well as some of our favourites at home and I wanted to share them with you if you are on the lookout for some Xmas bedtime stories with your little ones.


We have had Ten Little Elves by Mike brownlow and Simon Rickerty for quite a few years now.It comes out every year now and we take it in turns to read a page each of this one. A quick 5-minute one before bed, perfect for the sleepy heads that still want story time.

The Ten Little Elves are on a mission to rescue Christmas ... But what will the Ten Little Elves do when they meet a growling polar bear? And a yowling yeti? And a SCARY Ice Queen?.


Oh no! Shark is quite a classic one and there are a few versions of this one, we have them all but bring out Oh No! Shark in the Snow by Nick Sherratt at Christmas time. 

Is there a shark in the snow?. This one features the big man himself at the end :)


Christmas stories are not complete in December if we haven't read Stick Man by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler a hundred times. Stick Man lives in the family tree With his Stick Lady Love and their stick children three.

But it's dangerous being a Stick Man. A dog wants to play with him, and a swan builds her nest with him. He even ends up on a fire! Will he ever get back to the family tree?


That Christmas by Richard Curtis and Rebecca Cobb is a new one in our Xmas collection. We picked this up last year. Christmas is the same every year, isn't it? Same food, same routine, same visiting the neighbours and going for a walk. Except for the year of That Christmas...

Find out what happens when traditions are upturned, when chaos reigns, and what's 
really important when people come together.


This one had been on my Amazon wishlist for a few weeks so I am glad we've had a library visit as we picked up a few great Xmas books there this week. The Christmas Pine by Julia Donaldson and Victoria Sando

Deep in a snowy wood stands a little pine tree with a special destiny: when it grows up, it's going to be the famous Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square!
