And Then Comes Christmas by Tom Brenner

A lyrical and lovely ode to winter and to Christmas, this book invites the reader to watch for signs of the approaching season - and to revel in the cosy rituals that warm a family celebration. Evoking both winter's changes to the world outside and well-loved traditions taking place at home with the family, here is a story to encourage readers to curl up with their loved ones and bask in the magic of the Christmas season. From icicles clinging to roofs and houses strung with colourful lights to visiting Santa and hunting for the perfect tree, this classic-in-the-making celebrates all the holiday's excitement.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.
