“Here's another Usborne book that the Sweet Craftiness family love. It's called 'The Usborne Book of Christmas Stories.' Pick the book up and it feels lovely, a big padded cover and a red ribbon bookmark is contained inside. To make the scene on the front cover look more magical, the illustration has been partially embossed in silver...Well done Usborne, we thoroughly enjoyed the book!”
“...a collection of six modern Christmas stories, perfect for storytime. This is a lovely hardback book with a gorgeous sparkly cover. The festive stories are lively and interesting, and they are well illustrated with cartoon-style drawings. Daniel’s favourite story was ‘The Elf and the Toymaker’, featuring a toy machine that can make any toy a child wants – what would your children wish for?”
