I find this book particularly endearing and recognise that it would make a lovely one on one story session with a children and a good way to celebrate Christmas.
Who would have thought that the Easter Bunny would get his knickers in a knot and be so jealous of Santa Clause? I know, I was surprised too, I have always thought of them as being the cheeriest best of friends, living in harmony, and enjoying the celebrations of each other’s jobs.
Ho! Ho! Ho! There is a Hippopotamus on Our Roof Eating Christmas Cake, dancing, sitting on a Christmas tree and making a list for Santa. Hazel Edwards delights us with the imagination of a child and the celebration of Christmas.
The Story of Christmas is like a little gift from heaven because it is an accurately portrayed story of the birth of Jesus. This book is everything that Christmas is to me, so when I received this gem in the mail I was instantly taken in by the beautiful illustrations and the brightness of each page
The first time I read through it I ran my hand over each shiny page, making discoveries until the very end. It was like the excitement of opening an advent calendar, the anticipation swirling around you as you open the first numbered flap or in this case the cover of the book.
I decided to share this today because it is one that mattered to me. There are books that come and go, there are books that stay with you and this is one of them.
