What to Read After... Holly Webb 12/05/21
Is It Really Nearly Christmas?
There’s only one more sleep until Christmas, but Lucas cannot wait! To pass the time, Willow reminds Lucas of everything they love about Christmas – making paper chains, decorating the tree and lighting the Christmas candle. Lucas and Willow want to stay awake to witness the magic of Christmas, but as the two children start to drift to sleep, the magic of Christmas begins to appear.
A soothing classic story about the magic of Christmas and the anticipation felt in the run up. The text is simple to follow and will warm the hearts of those that enjoy the traditions over the festive period.
The illustrations again reflect the nostalgia but really breathe the magic into this book, showing the readers of the toys making their journey through the house (and narrowly escaping the cat) and delivering themselves into the Christmas stockings. A perfect read for settling down excited children on Christmas Eve.
