Booky Advent Calender Day 22 - "Pick a Pine Tree" by Patricia Toht and Jarvis (Walker Books)

Wow, it's getting closer! Here's Day 22 on our Booky Advent calendar - and a delicious little book that describes one of the best things about the run-up to Christmas...

In "Pick a Pine Tree" by Patricia Toht, with illustrations by mega-talented illustrator Jarvis, every single atmospheric page spread is sizzling with the joys of Christmas, and in particular the grand tradition of decorating the centrepiece of any Christmas celebrations - the Christmas Tree itself.

With gentle and very clever rhymes, and the most beautiful colourful and characterful pictures, this one is as inviting and absorbing as a deep-filled mince pie covered in whipped cream. YUM!

Kids will absolutely adore the clever lilting way the story trips off the tongue, as well as all the tiny little details Jarvis has worked into each page spread.

It's a true christmas treat!

"Pick a Pine Tree" by Patricia Toht and Jarvis is out now, published by Walker Books (kindly supplied for review).
