I received these lovely books from Puffin and they must have read my mind because these are the very books the children wanted for Christmas.
I signed up to receive the books and part of the deal was
- I wouldn’t know what the books were
- I would share with you who I would be presenting them to on Christmas Day.
Clover Moon – Jadyn is a huge Jacqueline Wilson fan so she has this one down on her Christmas list. She will be thrilled to receive this.
The Christmasaurus – This is going to Ethan. I’m sure he’ll enjoy it.
The Witches’ Vacuum Cleaner – This will be going to Aeryn. She is a little young but I will be reading it to her every night and I’m sure she’ll love it.
I love books. And thankfully, the children share this love.
I read – A LOT – while growing up. For every birthday and Christmas, all I ever asked for was books.
My earliest memory with books was my mother reading to me and also taking me to the book shop and buying me books.
I can’t say I didn’t have favourites. I enjoyed reading the Famous Five series. My favourite series was also The Faraway Series – all about the fairies who lived in the enchanted wood. The characters like Dame Washalot, Moonface, the Saucepan Man. Did you read any of these?
One of my favourite books was and still is Heidi. I love the story of Heidi and her relationship with her grandfather in Switzerland. It was a rather sad story but I loved reading about Heidi and her life in the mountains.
Do you like reading? What’s your favourite book from your childhood?
I received these books from Penguin Random House children’s books.
