Wow! I can’t believe it’s December – time to get all Christmassey – yeah! The December theme for Six for Sunday, hosted by A Little But a Lot, is It’s the most wonderful time of the year and today’s wish is for for Books set over Christmas. I’ve decided to go for picture books as I love reading these in the run up to Christmas.
This is one of my favourite books, and also one of the first films I watch in December.
I first came across this one when we used it as a unit of work with our Year 6 children. It is a really beautiful and moving story, full of Christmas spirit.
This is one of my most loved Christmas stories. This one is my favourite edition, illustrated by Christian Birmingham.
I recently read this one and really enjoyed its messages of appreciation of the natural world and to cherish what we have rather than wishing our lives away with things that may not fulfil us as much as we thought they would.
This is the only one of my six that I haven’t read yet. I’m saving it for closer to Christmas, can can’t wait to cosy up with it.
This is my favourite Christmas story, despite the tears! I remember reading it as a child, and crying my eyes out. It never fails to make me cry no matter how many time I read it.
Do you have a favourite picture book set at Christmas?
