Twenty Four Days to Christmas – a book review

I’m sharing a charming book with you today as part of a blog tour. Twenty Four Days to Christmas is written by Fred Arthur and is available in Kindle and Paperback form.  If you’re looking for a book to add to your Christmas themed collection or as part of a book advent, then this could be the book for you.

Twenty Four Days to Christmas

We meet Poppy, who is incredibly excited.  It’s the 1st December and she cannot wait for Christmas Day.  Her parents have to think of a way to keep her excitement contained in the build up to the big day.  So they come up with a range of daily festive activities.

From visiting somewhere new, Buckland Abbey, to making sparkly cards, Poppy was kept amused as she counted down the days to Christmas Day.  On Christmas Eve Poppy goes to her church nativity play, which is a little similar to the crib service that Monkey and I normally attend.  She has had such a busy few weeks, with lots happening to keep her entertained, how can it be Christmas Day already?

We’re waiting for our paperback copy of Twenty Four Days to Christmas to arrive at the moment, so have just looked through the pdf pages, so my review isn’t as comprehensive as it would normally be. I’m sure once we have the book and can read it properly together, Monkey will love it.  I certainly like the idea of a daily activity to keep children amused on the run up to the big day.

The author, Fred Arthur has also come up with a list of his favourite Christmas books – which would you add?

1. The Snowman – (watch this space for a giveaway for this book here tomorrow!)

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with an 8 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 days out, 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.
