Lucy and Tom At Christmas

Publisher: Red Fox

Review

Lucy and Tom are getting ready for Christmas. There is masses to do - pudding to stir, cards to make, decorations to put up and presents to wrap.

Mum helps them to write letters to Father Christmas, and dad takes them to choose a Christmas tree. It's hard to go to sleep on Christmas Eve knowing that Father Christmas is coming soon! After church, lots of friends and family arrive for dinner. Lucy and Tom hand out the presents and baby Elizabeth goes to sleep in the wrapping paper. After lots of games, they light the tree and Christmas joy spills out into the street.

A heart-warming celebration of a classic Christmas with many evocative illustrations to talk about.
