Christmas Gift Guide – Brilliant Books for Children

Here’s for another edition of this year’s Christmas Gift Guide.  This time we’re talking about brilliant books for kids. My children love a good book and books are an absolutely brilliant gifts to give at Christmas. 🙂

Diary of a Wimpy Kid – The Getaway

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid books are huge hits in our house.  We really do love them.  The films are fab too and it was the film Dog Days that first introduced us to the stories. 

The newest DoaWK adventure is out now.  The thing I love about the Heffleys is that their best laid plans always seem to go awry.  In this adventure they plan a holiday to escape the stress of Christmas.  Naturally, it doesn’t go to plan and they all end up far more stressed than they would have had they stayed home. 

You can buy Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Getaway from Amazon.

 

 

 

My Golden Ticket

My Golden Ticket is a fantastic collaboration between Wonderbly and Roald Dahl. 

The personalisation of the story is super brilliant and no two stories are the same! 

Join in with the adventure, from finding your golden ticket, through a tour of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory before finally creating your very own sweet treat. 

I have written a full review of My Golden Ticket on the blog.  You can even win your own personalised copy.

The Christmasaurus

A banner of Tom Fletcher's book, The Christmasaurus.Seren has just acquired this book.  She is beginning to really love reading and when I told her she could choose a book rather than a toy she picked up Tom Fletcher’s The Christmasaurus. 

All I knew about the book is who wrote it.  It looks amazing though. 

Heading off on a Christmas Eve adventure with William Trundle, Santa and a Dinosaur is sure to set your imagination into action.

Where’s Macsen?

We really love itsyourstory.co.uk personalised books.   This beautiful personalised Christmas story featuring your own child is a truly lovely story of the mischievousness of Christmas morning.

Your child can go on their own little adventure around the house doing things they really shouldn’t.  Better still they can see their face in the book.

Children’s meditations – In my heart

We were sent this book to review and instantly I was struck by the beautiful, relaxing cover. 

Written by Danish author, Gitte Winter Graugaard, the heart of the book is a love of time together.

And with Denmark being the world’s happiest country, surely it’s no surprise that Children’s meditations In my heart is such a popular bedtime book.  We’re all striving to achieve what Denmark already has. 

Gitte’s book is quickly becoming a firm bedtime favourite in our house. 

You can buy the book here.

From 1 to 10 with Enfys and From A to Z with Enfys

This Early Learning bundle from itsyourstory.co.uk is the perfect gift for your pre-schooler this Christmas.  Not only is it personalised with your child’s name (which isn’t Enfys) but your child’s face can feature on most pages within the books.

We love them.  They provide Enfys with a truly unique learning experience and she just loves to turn the pages to see the next counting and alphabet adventure.
