Our elementary library students would love these Holiday books options in our circulation. Hoping with fingers crossed.ReplyDelete
Crap at commenting but always read your blog and love your recomendations.Thank you.Also,thank you for inspiring me to get together a selection of Christmas themed books for my two.We will start reading a Christmas story each night during advent; they are so excited and the countdown to Saturday has begun(although I must admit that the chocloate advent calendars that my aunt sent also have something to do with the excitment,lol).ReplyDelete
PS Never fussy when it comes to books but if I had to decide on one of the above,I think that Island Santa would get the vote.ReplyDelete
My favorite holiday story is The Gift of the Magi, I first read it when I was 8, and it left a deep impression on me. My little kid mind was stuck on the horror of her losing her hair and he losing his (watch?) and the gift they bought each other was for the thing they lost. But as I grew up I grasped the deeper meaning of the love to give up something so dear to you to make someone happy.ReplyDelete
Hi! I'm a Canadian living in Japan too!! Have you heard of this book? http://www.amazon.ca/Where-Are-You-Bear-Adventure/dp/1897349912ReplyDelete
When I was back my friend got it for my son and it's great. It isn't a story book, though. It however, does teach the alphabet and the provinces and territories with wonderful illustrations. I'm not sure where you are located. I'm in Tokyo and if you are close I can lend it to you if you like!
Oh I love Christmas too and Christmas books rock! Wombat Divine is a great Aussie Christmas story.ReplyDelete
We don't have many holiday books yet, mostly just the 'Little Golden Book' classics which I've just started reading to Xander. My personal favourite though is 'Grug and his first Christmas'. I'm not sure if the 'Grug' series by Ted Prior is internationally known, but it's a great Aussie series. I grew up with it and intend to ensure Xander will too.ReplyDelete
We've been enjoying 'Maisy's Christmas Eve' the last few years and I'm sure it'll be popular again this time. Even though K is 4 now, he shows no sign of growing out of Maisy!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the giveaway - I read your blog often, but its the first time I`ve commented - useless I know!ReplyDelete
Love Christmas, although spending the day in Japan when hub is working and no one else really celebrates is a bit lonely... looking forward to my son growing up and celebrating with me!!
We don`t really have any favorite books yet, although I`m sure anything with a train or car involved will go down a treat! hehe
It's a Wonderful Life - the movie. My husband shared this movie with me our first Christmas together.ReplyDelete
I remember watching 'A Christmas Carol' or 'Scrooge' with my two older sisters when we were young. My father used to tell us some stories before going to bed but not reading to us. Now that I have a baby, I just can't wait to read a book for him, but for now he enjoys picture and animal books.ReplyDelete
What a lovely give away and both books look fantastic and nice to read together under the christmas tree once it is cold and snowy outside, thanks again for all your great work, best from Tokyo HeideReplyDelete
Growing up we split our Christmases between the UK and South Africa so I grew used to cold and sunny Christmases alike, but never a sunny island Christmas. I do LOVE the charitable undertone to Christmas in Island Santa as we were always made to wrap up an old toy or two in exchange for Santa's generosity. Merry Christmas and lovely giveaway - thank you!ReplyDelete
The only holiday story/book we have at the moment is Father Christmas by Raymond Briggs, which I am very fond of, love The Snowman too. Thank you for the lovely giveaway :)ReplyDelete
