Review

Fred Arthur, Green, Reindeer, Santa, Girl, Christmas, Holidays, Children's Books, 24 Days to Christmas,I received this book from Authoright/publisher in exchange of an honest review.

I am writing this in the later part of November, this is my very first Christmas book before the season truly starts. My house is already mostly in Christmas mode, normally I wouldn’t do that until December, but this year I was like who cares, I need some sparkles and lights in my life. So I decided that I also wanted to read this book to get even more in the Christmas Spirit.

This book is about 24 days before Christmas and then Christmas itself! I thought it was a picture book (given the cover mostly), but it was just a normal book. No problem, even more for me to enjoy! Meet Poppy, a young girl who absolutely loves Christmas and wants to celebrate. NOW. To help her get through all the days of December before the event actually is, the parents think of a fun plan that I absolutely loved. They set up 24 stockings, like an advent calendar, and each new day brought something fun. I just had tons of fun watching Poppy discover each day and of course I was just as eager as her to discover what was in each stocking. What the plans for that day were (and there were many many fun plans and I am happy I was along for the ride). The parents really thought up everything, it was amazing, so much work must have gone into it.

I loved that each chapter was a new day! And I loved that not only was that noted in text, but also done by showing a little elf in a new stocking with the number of that specific day. That was just so cute!

And of course the Christmas eve/day was wonderfully fun!

While here we also have Sinterklaas and at most homes you celebrate either that or Christmas (as otherwise it would get very expensive). When I was little we celebrated Sinterklaas, later as I grew up we went to Christmas. But I can still remember how hyped little me was when Sinterklaas was coming. First the day he would arrive, the parade, then setting a shoe (with a drawing and maybe something for Sinterklaas his horse), and hope for candy or something small, and then building up to the big day, December 5th. I could so understand Poppy’s eagerness, her not wanting to wait.

The illustrations in the book were quite cute and I quite enjoyed them.

All in all, a very fun book about Christmas, about waiting, and about all sorts of fun things one can do around Christmas. Recommended.

Star rating, 4.5 stars

Poppy is in agony – it is the First of December and she has twenty-four days to wait until Christmas and she is convinced that she will not be able to contain her excitement and impatience: How can she possibly wait so long for Santa to arrive? Poppy’s parents put their heads together and come up with a cunning plan that has Poppy completing a different, Christmas themed activity every day, to keep Her busy until Christmas (and Santa) finally arrives. Twenty-Four Days To Christmas is an Advent Calendar of a book, which can be read one day at a time, or as a complete story, and centres on Christmas, family and the magic of the Christmas season
