The Lovereading4Kids comment

This little book is just the thing to put the very, very young in the Christmas spirit! In jolly rhyme and across five sturdy board book pages, it tells five favourite stories, including The Nutcracker, The Snow Queen and The First Christmas Story. Each page is full of things for baby to look at and features a special peepo flap as well as trails for little fingers to follow, making this a thoroughly tactile and happy reading experience. The illustrations are bright and attractive and this will be satisfying and fun for baby and grown-up alike. ~ Andrea Reece


Christmas Stories Follow the Finger Trails by Luana Rinaldo

A first book about Christmas storytelling - for older babies. With finger trails and textures to explore the stories. Christmas Stories is a unique way for parents and babies to share classic Christmas stories together, including the Nutcracker, the Snow Queen and the Nativity.

Each spread has finger trails cut into the page, and textured illustrations for little hands to trace. The trails wind their way around beautiful, festive illustrations, designed to capture the imagination and the spirit of Christmas. Carefully placed, lively rhyming text is a springboard for readers to take the story into new directions of their own. Each spread is a complete story that allows the baby and parent to spend time looking, talking about, exploring and touching the page.

The perfect start to the festive season with young children.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
