Our Christmas book today was Little Grey Rabbit’s Christmas.
Alison Uttley’s classic story of Little Grey Rabbit’s Christmas was first published in 1939, and has remained popular ever since. The heartwarming story of Little Grey Rabbit and her woodland friends is complemented by Margaret Tempest’s beautiful illustrations.
Little Grey Rabbit goes to the market and brings back a sledge for her friends Squirrel and Hare. But when Hare loses it in the snow, will they ever see it again?
This lovely Christmas story is perfect to read aloud to little ones, and would also be suitable for children who are learning to read. When asked about the appeal of her characters, Alison Uttley said, “Why do children love them? Because I believe in them.”
