I Love You Father Christmas by Giles Andreae and Emma Dodd (Orchard Books)


I Love You Father Christmas

Written by Giles Andreae

Illustrated by Emma Dodd

Published by Orchard Books

We're going to do it, we're going to break our "Christmas Book Reviews" duck early this year with a cuddly corker of a book in the much-loved "I Love You" series by Giles Andreae and Emma Dodd.

"I Love You Father Christmas" is a fun look at the man in the white beard from a child's perspective. He's jolly, he has the world's most infectious laugh, a sleigh packed with presents and of course he has some awesome reindeer friends too.

We love these books for the 'family friendly' feeling they exude, and it's the perfect time to start thinking about books as stocking fillers (you do get all your christmas shopping done early don't you? Of course you do!)

A good sturdy board book and a great place to start if you're looking for a neat little festive treat for your young ones.

"I Love You, Father Christmas" will be out well in time for the festive season, on October 3rd 2013.

Charlotte's best bit: Santa's big black stompy boots!

Daddy's Favourite bit: Charming and lovely. We're not quite at the stage of planning Christmas yet but we'd love one like the one in this book!
