Amazing book to read out loud to kids during Christmas Perfect for our 4 year old. I can not recommend this book enough A lovely story written like a traditional Christmas story My three year old dipped in and out of the story, but my five year old was captivated and couldn t wait for us to read it each night at bedtime Each chapter has an activity to do with your child, from writing a letter to Father Christmas to making stained glass biscuits and christmas decorations A lovely way to get into the festive spirit and a great alternative to Elf on the Shelf too. I bought this knowing that it was probably too young for my 9, 11 and 13 yr old boys but thought it would be a bit of fun They loved it It was brilliant seeing the frustration each night when the chapter, usually 2 3 pages, ended We dipped in and out of the activities when time allowed and it was lovely having everyone get stuck in I thoroughly recommend the book Thank you Alex T Smith for making our Christmas an extra special one. Very nice book Nice hard cover and the pages are thick as well Great quality.
