Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…

As soon as I opened this book to take a look at the range of stories included and saw that The Elves and The Shoemaker was included I was one happy lady as it is one of my favourite children’s stories which often gets overlooked.

As the book includes 38 different stories we actually read three different stories this evening for bed, my favourite The Elves and The Shoemaker, Roo selected The Little Match Girl (another of my favourites too) and finally Tigger asked for Santa Claus’ Helpers.

A truly wonderful collection of Christmas stories that I can see being read year after year.
