Dear Father Christmas

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

Christmas is fast approaching and Holly must let Father Christmas know what presents she would like him to bring. Instead of a list Holly decides to leave Father Christmas a letter as there are a few questions about his life in Lapland she would like to ask first.

To Holly's surprise Father Christmas replies and the pair begin to exchange letters. Soon Holly has the courage to ask for the present she desires most in the world and sure enough on Christmas Eve there is a suitably magical result.

Children will love opening the real letters included in this book; along with the Christmas facts and jokes Santa also encloses. Families will enjoy reading this together in the run up to Christmas and sharing the detailed letters and illustrations.
