Hello! Christmas is illustrated by Angie Rozelaar and is a board book for young children. The text reads as a simple rhyming story to go alongside the illustrations. Miss T was delighted to receive this book from PanMacmillan to review.
With the book being all about Christmas, it is a great one to help everyone get in the festive mood in the run up to Christmas, or a perfect Christmas gift for a young child.
The book says it is best for children aged 2 and over, but I think even younger children would enjoy this book. I know I used to read books like this with all three of my children from just under a year old. That seemed to be the age at which they could start to point and name some familiar objects in books, and also started to appreciate things like lift-the-flap books.
This book is sturdier than a lift-the-flap style book as the parts that move are incorporated into the thick board pages of the book, again helping to make it suitable for young children.
Miss T enjoys Christmas books all year round and this is one she keeps asking to read again and again. But if you don't fancy being stuck with a Christmas theme all year round, there is also a Hello! London book and a Hello! School book in the series too.
Hello! Christmas is available from PanMacmillan.
