LoveReading View on The Christmas Bear

All sorts of Christmas treats are packed into this splendid board book! There’s the story – accidentally left behind by Santa, Christmas Bear must make his own way to Tom’s house in time for Christmas; there’s the text, full of jokes and very silly rhymes; there are Axel Scheffler’s illustrations, bright, busy compositions packed full of cheerful animals, all brimming with fun and character; there’s a hide and seek game – can you spot Christmas Bear?; and there are flaps to lift on every page. It all works as a marvellous whole, and will provide many, many hours of top reading entertainment! ~ Andrea Reece
