It’s that time of the year again where everything is bright and cheery and there is an air of excitement everywhere.
Christmas sees us being nice to each other, helping one another and being on our best behaviour.
I love Christmas films and I also love reading Christmas stories to the children.
We were recently sent Norman the Slug who saved Christmas to review and it is such a lovely story.
Now everyone who has seen a slug knows how slow it is. But Norman has to be pretty quick if he intends to save Christmas as he has to deliver presents in record time.
I won’t spoil the story for you but it is a great story for this time of the year.
Here’s the story –
When a sack of presents lands – THWACK – right by Norman’s stocking he is overcome with excitement. He really must have been a very good slug this year. But after a frenzy of unwrapping he spots a label – and realises that none of the presents were meant for him, but had in fact fallen off Father Christmas’s sleigh. Norman knows he has to get the presents to the family they’re meant for – but how can he manage it on time? Can one little slug save Christmas?
What we thought –
We enjoyed the story immensely and it is perfect for getting into the spirit of Christmas. It is written in a simple way and the illustrations are bright and attractive which woul appeal to young children.
We give this one 4 stars.
