Sunday picture Book – Here Comes Jack Frost

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 :)

Here Comes Jack Frost picture book review

I honestly didn’t think Bear  would enjoy this. It was too… odd. Angular.
Frosty, actually.
Not at all the soft, gorgeous imagery she usually chooses.

Shows what I know.

Here Comes Jack Frost is plucked from the bookshelf again and again.


Because I love it as much as Bear does.

The simply paper cut style illustration is beautiful, and far more evocative than I expected. Perfect, in fact, for a story of a world caught in the deep, sharp depths of an icy winter.

It’s a simple, enchanting tale of the wonder and beauty and freedom that Jack Frost brings – until the day The Boy sees a snowdrop.

Definitely one to add to your bookshelf. Here Comes Jack Frost the paperback is £5.45 at Amazon at the moment.

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.
