Give them books this Christmas 

Hi there! Hope you are all well. Where has the year gone? Can you believe it’s almost December? I’m not ready for the year to be over, and I’m not ready for Christmas, but alas! The merry season is upon us.  With that in mind I thought I would share with you some of my favourite read aloud books, many of which you would have heard me read at storytime over the past few years. These books would be perfect gifts for little ones aged 0 – 7.
