We were sent ‘When I Dream Of Christmas’ a while back, though have only recently started to read it nightly – it’s a perfect book for bedtime, short and silly funny facts about Christmas which make H laugh. Her favourite at the moment is the stockings page – things like smelly socks seem to be extremely funny for a three-year old!
I really like the illustrations – there’s lots going on in every picture, as well as extra bits to count if you fancy staying on a page a bit longer (how many snowflakes? Count the baubles? How many trees? And so on) – and silly facts “Mistletoe is best avoided if your grandad likes eating onions and has a tickly moustache” (which I changed to daddy, so H nearly fell off her chair laughing).
Do you have an iPod, iPad or iPhone? You can currently get the eBook of ‘When I Dream of Christmas’ for free (check before you click in case it is charged again and my link is out of date) at the App Store, so you can even try before you buy!
I can see this being a book we’ll read every Christmas for a good few years – and H loves announcing each page as we get there. She also loves the cover as “it’s all sparkly!” – a winner in our house!
We were sent this book to review, all opinions are our own.
