This afternoon I read The Christmas Book to Rabbit and Tiddler. This simple picture book by Dick Bruna, the creator of Miffy, was one of my favourites as a child.
It tells the story of the nativity in a perfectly clear and simple way for little children to understand. The pictures are lovely, and wonderfully easy to copy which is great fun – we might do that tomorrow. If you only buy one Christmas book for your children, make it this one!
