Christmas is Special- Anita Ganeri and Jennie Poh

Do you have children asking you why we celebrate Christmas?  Do they ask why we give presents or sing carols?  Christmas is Special is a charming, accessible introduction to the Christmas story.

The book starts by telling the Christmas story in a simple, succinct way and continues by explaining how Christians celebrate Christmas with a tree, carols, giving gifts and nativity plays.  This would be a lovely book to use with children of pre-school and infant age who are wanting to learn more about the meaning of Christmas.  The bright, bold illustrations will capture the imagination of your little one and the hardback edition has a glossy cover similar to that of the annuals which spring up at this time of year.

With a glossary and index, this is also a great introduction to non-fiction texts. 

Christmas is Special is out now, published by Wayland.


With thanks to the publisher who provided me with a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
