It’s a beautifully illustrated book of 24 chapters counting down to Christmas, with a festive themed activity at the end of each chapter, including writing a letter to Father Christmas, baking mince pies, designing your very own Christmas cards, making presents, creating decorations for your tree, a recipe for easy gingerbread cookies and more.
The story in the book features a brave little mouse who sets out on an adventure on Christmas Eve and the book features beautiful illustrations and artwork throughout the book.
“Winston the mouse is on a Very Important Mission. On Christmas Eve, he finds a letter that has gotten lost on its way to Father Christmas – so, with no time to lose, he sets out to deliver it himself in time for Christmas Day! He has a lot of Very Exciting Adventures on his Very Important Mission and makes some wonderful friends along the way.”
This gorgeous hardback book is a great way to read with your kids and do fun festive activities together in the weeks leading up to Christmas as well. It’s sure to become a family tradition to read the stories and do the activities together every year in December.
The book features a festively foiled jacket, a ribbon marker and head and tail bands and would make a lovely gift for Christmas or the time before. The layout inside is stunning too.
I can’t wait to read the rest of the book with my girls and work our way through the fun activities!
How Winston Delivered Christmas is available from Amazon.co.uk and other good book stores.
