A Few of my Favourite Christmas Books for Kids
by Tom Lloyd (Educational Psychologist and Daddy to Tabitha & Marlow)
…greetings to all of you out there in Instagram land. This is a wonderful conversation-starter of a book for nursery-aged children and the wintry bits are particularly well illustrated.
‘The Fox and the Star’
Following yonder star…
‘The Polar Express’
My personal favourite Santa story
‘Little Grey Rabbit’s Christmas’
Richly nostalgic for both Sarah and me and no doubt for people even older than me! The sort of book Jimmy Stewart might have read to his kids in the closing scenes of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life‘.
‘The Snowman’ DVD
It won’t have escaped your attention that this is not a book. It’s screen-based entertainment: hisssss. But the book doesn’t feature David Bowie’s fashion crime of the century. That jumper. Sack the stylist, as Sarah would say.
The Snowman/Father Christmas DVD, £6.95
Merry Christmas to one and all,
