Twenty Four Days to Christmas by Fred Arthur

As we approach the Advent season, we are waiting for our free paperback copy of children’s Christmas book “Twenty Four Days to Christmas” by Fred Arthur to arrive. In the meantime, we have been looking at the kindle version. Just like how you can have Advent candles as an alternative to an Advent calendar, here is a book with a tale for each day of Advent.

Here is the book blurb.

Poppy is in agony – it is the First of December and she has twenty-four days to wait until Christmas and she is convinced that she will not be able to contain her excitement and impatience: How can she possibly wait so long for Santa to arrive? Poppy’s parents put their heads together and come up with a cunning plan that has Poppy completing a different, Christmas themed activity every day, to keep Her busy until Christmas (and Santa) finally arrives. Twenty-Four Days To Christmas is an Advent Calendar of a book, which can be read one day at a time, or as a complete story, and centres on Christmas, family and the magic of the Christmas season.

This book is truly delightful and beautifully illustrated. It can be read each day throughout Advent or alternatively all in one go. Think of it as an Advent calendar but as a book. It is packed full of 24 Christmas activities for Poppy to participate in, all thought up by her parents to keep her busy so she forgets her impatience at waiting for the big day itself.

It is one of those timeless Christmas books that we shall enjoy year after year, just like The Night Before Christmas.

Twenty Four Days to Christmas is available on Amazon, currently priced at £5.99 in paperback and is also available in Kindle format. and is published by Clink Street Publishing. Written by Fred Arthur and illustrated by Paul Winward. I highly recommend this gorgeous children’s Advent book. I’ve read the story in one go and we are looking forward to reading it together on a day by day basis throughout Advent. Son1 has also already enjoyed dipping into it.

    What a lovely idea! I’ve never thought of doing book advents. We hardly even have any Christmas books. My kids are too old for it all now, anyway!
