Here are some of the Christmas themed picture books Immy is enjoying right now…
Christmas Wombat, Jackie French & Bruce Whatley, 2011
Immy is already a big fan of the quirky Diary of a Wombat and Diary of a Baby Wombat and was excited to receive Christmas Wombat this week. It offers a very funny look at Christmas from a low-to-the-ground, Wombat perspective.
Olive, The Other Reindeer, J. otto Selbold, 1997
“Olive… the other Reindeer… I thought I was a dog. Hmmm, I must be a Reindeer!” And so Olive sets off to the North Pole to help Santa and the reindeer bring Christmas to the world. And thankfully, her help is just what they need!
Merry Christmas, Splat, Rob Scotton, 2009
Has Splat been good enough this year to receive a really big present? After a last minute flurry of helpful activity goes wrong, he is doubtful and decides to wait up for Santa who never comes…or does he?
The Night Before Christmas Pop Up Book, Clement Clark Moore, Illutrated by Lee Krutop, 2006
The gorgeously, detailed pop up illustrations bring this version of the classic poem to life. Plus there is a surprise hiding in Santa’s sack right at the end.
A Christmas Story, Brian Wildsmith, 1998
The Christmas Story told through the eyes of Rebecca, friend to Mary and Joseph, who journeys from Nazareth to Bethlehem with a baby donkey pining for his mother. With touches of ‘real’ gold in the illustrations on every page, this version of the story hves really captured Immy’s interest.
