Peapod’s Book Advent

So we lost our way with keeping the posts about our book advent up to date. (I have just counted up our Christmas books though and since we had 42 instead of 24/25 it’s maybe not surprising!)

BUT we loved doing it. We read so many wonderful books – from the wintry and snowy to the warm and fuzzy to the downright silly and laugh out loud.

So, while I may not have managed to post proper reviews of them all, here’s what we read this Christmas:

Nightmare Before Christmas by Tim Burton

Grandpa Christmas by Michael Morpurgo and Jim Field

Snow in the Garden: A First Book of Christmas, Alfie’s Christmas and Lucy and Tom at Christmas by Shirley Hughes

The Snowman and Father Christmas by Raymond Briggs

Little Robin Red Vest by Jan Fearnley

Emily Brown and Father Christmas by Cressida Cowell and Neal Layton

Humphrey’s Christmas by Sally Hunter

Maisy’s Christmas Eve by Lucy Cousins

Aliens Love Panta Claus by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort

Winnie and Wilbur Meet Santa by Valerie Thomas and Korky Paul

Stick Man by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler

Supertato: Evil Pea Rules by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet

Meg’s Christmas by Jan Pienkowski

Mog’s Christmas by Judith Kerr

How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr Seuss

Paddington’s Christmas Surprise by Michael Bond and R. W. Alley

Santasaurus by Niamh Sharkey

Pick a Pine Tree by Patricia Toht and Jarvis

Mince Spies by Mark Sperring and Sophie Corrigan

Father Christmas Needs a Wee by Nicholas Allan

The Night Before The Night Before Christmas by Kes Gray and Claire Powell

The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore and Eric Puybaret

The Jolly Christmas Postman by Janet and Alan Ahlberg

Just with these we had enough for a book a night leading up to Christmas, but I bought some as we went along (as well as being sent some for review) and already had some wintry, snowy ones:

Kipper’s Snowy Day by Mick Inkpen

The Storm Whale in Winter by Benji Davies

The Gruffalo’s Child by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler

Snowball by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet

Snow is My Favourite and My Best by Lauren Child

One Snowy Night by Nick Butterworth

Winnie the Pooh: The Long Winter’s Sleep by Jane Riordan

Harry and the Snow King by Ian Whybrow

So they went into the mix too and in the end we had enough for a seasonal book each bedtime throughout December.

But I’d also bought/received some lovely festive board books, so they went in the basket to be read/felt/flip-the-flapped during the days!

Dream Snow by Eric Carle

Dear Santa by Rod Campbell

The Snowman Puppet Playbook

Kipper’s Snowy Day and Kipper’s Christmas Eve by Mick Inkpen

That’s Not My… Reindeer/Penguin/Snowman

Where’s Mr Penguin/Where’s Santa Claus? by Ingela P Arrenhius

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from me and ‘Peapod’!
