One Sparkly Christmas Night

by Julia Stone


Price: £5.99
Publisher:Lion Hudson
Published:September 2013
This is a beautifully illustrated children's board book that tells the story of the little shepherd boy at Christmas. It's simply narrated as it follows the shepherd boy as he is visited by an angel, meets the wise men and then finds the baby Jesus.

What is truly delightful about this book are the illustrations by Angela Muss. They are bright, engaging and tactile wherever it sparkles and it is sure to capture the attention of its reader. What's also wonderful - it's sparkly without leaving glitter all over your hands, as any parent will tell you this is a huge plus in its favour. Overall a great book for younger children during the Christmas period.
