  1. Ooh! How exciting – my just-three year old is finally at an age to understand Santa Claus and Christmas! Our favourite, must read at least once a day and each bedtime at the moment, is The Gruffalo’s Child, with the interactive sound effect panel. She loves participating in telling the story, and it’s such a fun book to read together :) Thanks for the opportunity!

  2. We love Birdie Black and Rosalind Beardshaw’s ‘Just Right’, but our favourite Christmas book currently goes to Jackie French and Bruce Whatley’s ‘Queen Victoria’s Christmas’. Miss Eight is an animal lover and she loves how the two dogs and birds are intimately involved in the Christmas activities. And now she can read the whole book by herself – although we take it in turns to read the text and other times we make up a whole other back story – which is great fun. We’d love to visit Santa’s Magical Kingdom – we’ve never been before and the whole combination of snow, circus, Santa, rides and more looks wonderful. Thanks for running such a great competition!

  3. My comment is on your facebook page because I want you to see the book covers!

  4. We just love Wombat Divine in our house by Mem Fox. Its a lovely story with an Australian twist on the Nativity play that is engaging and entertaining. The perfect book for Christmas.

    Christmas Carols from the Kennel (By Santa Paws), I love this book as it has the lyrics to all my favourite Christmas carols along with a lot of adorable pictures of festively dressed pooches.

  6. My favourite book to read to my children is Oh, The Places You’ll Go. Apart from being a delightful tounge twister of a tale I just adore having my little ones on my lap imagining their limitless futures.

  7. God Gave Us Christmas-This is about a mamma polar bear and her cub.They go through series of questions and answers.This story gives us (parents) to explain our little once why Christmas is so special for us and why we celebrate it every year.My little 2 year old son just started to understand the meaning of Christmas.I read this book before he goes to sleep.Hope to show him everything I have explained in this book at Santa’s Magical Kingdom :)

  8. ‘Dear Santa’, is my 3 year olds favourite Christmas Book. As it is in exactly the same format as’Dear Zoo’, the fold down flaps on each page always provide an immense amount of predictable surprise! In fact we actually enjoy it all year round. Everyone needs a touch of Christmas spirit throughout the year.

  9. Christmas books are a hit all year round with my kids – so to is Christmas music – EEK!! We do a book advent and have so many favourites we have to include – The Jolly Christmas Postman, Aliens love Panta Claus, Christmas Wombat, The Night before Christmas, and of course a few new surprises each year too. But the favourite in our family has to be The 12 Dogs of Christmas – it’s cheesy, not exactly thought-provoking, but boy do we have the best fun with it. Every read is different – whether it’s taking turns singing, competitions to find the dogs by the tree, running round acting out the characters, and the inevitable hysterical meltdown when it comes to pooping dogs! Even Miss 3 will take time out of a tantrum to find the fat cat in a fir tree. Every single page, lol. It might not be the most memorable book on the face of it, but it’s sure making some great memories

  10. It’s actually a pop-up book called ‘How Santa Really Works’, by Alan Snow. My kids have been a bit rough with it and, over time, have pulled out some of the pop-up characters. Fortunately they aren’t lost, they just sit loosely inside the book. I thought about replacing the book or sticky-taping the characters back to their original positions but … funny thing … that’s actually when the book truly came alive for us! Now, every time we sit and ‘read’ this book, we play with the characters, moving them through the house and through the pages to create a different Christmas story every time. :-)

  11. ‘The night before Christmas’ is our number 1 choice!
    My daughter says in her little voice
    She loves the story and the pictures too
    and she always asks me if the story is true
    She tells her brother to be nice to others
    And that all little kids should behave for their Mothers
    So on Christmas Eve, when Santa is near
    We read this book, every year :)

  12. My favourite Christmas story (and to pass on this tradition) is The Night Before Christmas because who doesn’t have visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads? I have a few versions of this story however, my favourite is a Little Golden Book version (1987).

  13. Congratulations DANIELA ANDREWS.
