Picture Book Sunday – Jesus’ Christmas Party

We love books – obviously – and we often review latest releases. But I’ve been a parent for nearly twenty years, and I know that the older books sometimes get overlooked by new parents – and they’re missing out on a gem or two of bedtime reading. I think we all know the Very Hungry Caterpillar, of course, but I find newer parents may not know Albert Le Blanc, Little Tiger or Spot. There have been some beautiful picture books that we’d like to re-introduce into your life – I welcome you to the Sunday Picture Book series :)

Jesus Christmas Party Book Review

Oh this book is BRILLIANT!

I was sniggering just from a first flick through, before I got anywhere near bedtime stories and reading it aloud to the 4yr old.

‘Jesus’ Christmas Party’ Tells the Christmas story from the point of view of the seriously sleep-deprived (and VERY grumpy) Inn Keeper, and should really come with a warning to all parents. Love it, because this book will be read again and again. And again.

Unusually for a book telling this story, it is neither overly heavy or sanctimonious, nor is it irreverent with its Christmas message.

However, one word of warning – small children will frequently bellow “ROUND THE BACK!” at anyone who knocks on the door…

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
