The Christmas Show – 12 Days of Christmas books – Day 10

As we all prepare for our childrens’ School Nativity Play’ next month I thought my next book in the 12 Days of Christmas Books post was quite apt.  Thanks to PanMacmillan I can share with you The Christmas Show by Rebecca Patterson.

The Christmas ShowThis 32 page paperback book tells us all about The Christmas Show from a child’s point of view.  A little boy, who is obviously not very good at paying attention (reminds me of someone…..), can’t remember which part he has in the play.

The Christmas ShowMonkey giggled through this story, The Christmas Show is something we can all relate to.  All the preparations, the boring bits when you have nothing to do, getting all the costumes ready.  The anxiety, and someone always feeling a little bit poorly before the performance.

We follow the little boy in The Christmas Show as he gets his shepherd’s outfit, and prepares for the big show.  Will he remember his lines, will he remember the song and dances?  Well, yes, but maybe not in the right order.

The Christmas ShowThe Christmas Show has given Monkey and I some good discussion points.  My son is not very good at telling me what he gets up to at Nursery School.  The standard reply to ‘what have you done today?’ is always ‘Nothing Mummy!’  This book has opened up a conversation.  He does do something at Nursery School after all!

We’ve really enjoyed reading The Christmas Show together, it’s funny, you can easily relate to the characters.  It’s a perfect story for this time of year.

My Monkey is an Angel in his Nativity play, what are your kids going to be?

disclaimer:  we were sent this book for the purpose of review, our comments however, remain our own honest opinions.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
