My Advent Calendar Christmas Book

by Antonia Jackson & Krisztina Kallai Nagy


Price: £5.99
Publisher:Lion Hudson
Published:September 2013

This is a fantastic item, both Advent calendar with the usual dated peelable doors on the front cover and yet also a lovely Christmas story book inside that tells the story from the annuciation right up to the escape to egypt in a simple and enjoyable prose that is both easy to read and understand for children but yet retains the essence of the Bible story too.

The images that go along with the story are full page colour and have a lovely poster colour look and style to them, both friendly, warm and inviting that are sure to be enjoyed by children.

At £5.99 this is a great bargain, you can pay that for just a basic Advent calendar sometimes and have nothing at the end of the season to show for it, whereas here not only do you get the joy of the windows countdown but you get a great book too, an excellent idea and lots of fun.
