Christmas Reading

A lot of my friends seem to be jumping on the book Advent bandwagon this year. As an avid reader with two young children that also love books, I think this is such a lovely idea and one I'm really tempted to join in with next year!

We already have a mini stash of books that come out with the Christmas decorations. They stay out for the month of December and then get packed away when the tree comes down in January. I'd really love to collect twenty four different festive themed ones so that we can read something completely different every night in December (ending with 'The Night Before Christmas' on Christmas Eve, of course!)

Last week we added 'The Best Christmas Jumper' by Rachel Bright and Vicki Gausden to our collection. This is a book produced by Costa in support of Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day. 

It's a brilliant rhyming story centred around Costa's four festive cup characters, Father Christmas, Reindeer, Snowman and Elf (and Penguin and Polar Bear too) and the illustrations are just gorgeous. It also has a great moral; to work together and not argue!

The book is on sale in Costa Coffee Shops across the country up until the end of December for just £1.50, £1.17 of which goes to Save the Children. It would make such a lovely stocking filler this year - and could come out every Christmas too. Next time you're buying a cup of coffee, why not pick a copy up xoxo

Thanks to Costa for sending us this little festive treat!
