5 Christmas Books for Children from Waterstones

Dec 17 • Family Fun, Featured, Reviews • 1510 Views • Comments Off on 5 Christmas Books for Children from Waterstones

In my imaginary world, this blissful scene happens every Christmas Eve: There’s a wood- burning fire crackling with the kids’ stockings hanging from the mantelpiece; a pine tree twinkles and fills the room with a sweet, evergreen aroma. My children, in clean pyjamas, curl at my feet, gazing at me adoringly while I read them a Christmas story…

The truth, of course, is rather different: We have a plastic tree due to my other half’s pine allergy (I think he’s allergic to Christmas actually), our fireplace was blocked-in by the previous owners and the only thing that crackles is the mouse that lives behind the wall. However, although my children are likely to be sporting a stained onesie that they’ve refused to take off since the beginning of the school holidays, they will hang out to listen to a Christmas story.
