The book told through rhyme and covers simple Christmas vocabulary such as: snowman, stocking, mistletoe, ho-ho-ho, Santa, elves, presents, reindeer, gifts, jingling and bells.
The book is set in a winter theme, with snow frost white towns, with sparkling, snowflakes and winter wonderlands.
It is an ideal picture book for young children to project and discuss Christmas Eve, the language of Christmas, revise rhyme and get excited about the advent and magic of Christmas.

Hello Emma, It's great to see you having so much fun with my book! Thank you so much for sharing these ideas here, they're really great. I'm going to share your post on my Facebook page and with the schools I work with. If it helps you any further in the classroom, there are plenty of free activity sheets and audio games on my website. (I find the games are great for getting the kids' fidgets over with before sitting down to read a story!) Thanks again and very best wishes, Michelle
