Advent and Christmas Stories……our review

Today I am sharing another lovely book, sent to us for review by our friends at Hawthorn Press……

Advent and Christmas Stories ‘A treasury of stories, verse and song’ takes the reader on a magical journey through the festive season.

Beginning with Advent and continuing through to Christmas, the book comprises mainly of stories, verses and songs focusing on the traditional Christmas story, but with the addition of tales which tell of the role of a selection of animals, which is a lovely touch. There are also some stories and songs with a less or non-religious focus, like the story of ‘The Too Little Fir Tree’ 

As an afterword, a chapter is included on ‘setting the mood for storytelling’ which is well worth a read, in fact I would suggest you read the entire book cover to cover before bringing the stories to children. Get a feel for what is included first and then set the scene for some festive storytelling, perhaps around the tree with a warm, festive drink and some gingerbread cookies?
