My boys found it inspirational--and pointed out that we did Christmas crackers earlier in the week rather than at Christmas dinner.

She wrote two novels for older children, Hero on a Bicycle , about a 13-year-old Italian boy during the occupation of Florence, and Whistling in the Dark , set during the Liverpool Blitz. Lovely time for read aloud with what I think are British traditions of Christmas pudding (Lucy and Tom stir), making cards, how they decorate and even what they give as gifts to each family member.

Shirley Hughes is the illustrator of more than two hundred children’s books and has won many prestigious awards, including the Kate Greenaway Medal twice. This wonderfully evocative Christmas book reminds me so vividly of my own childhood Christmases, with my mother making mince pies at the big wooden kitchen table and the Salvation Army playing Christmas carols.I'm sure I get more pleasure from it every year that passes, enjoying the wonderful illustrations and the simple story of a Christmas with family and friends together. Shirley Hughes was born in West Kirby, near Liverpool, in 1927, and studied fashion and dress design at Liverpool Art School, before continuing her studies at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford. The page where we see the presents that Lucy and Tom have both bought for their families raised a particular chuckle of recognition.

Shirley Hughes has won the Other Award, the Eleanor Farjeon Award, and the Kate Greenaway Medal for Illustration twice, for Dogger in 1977 and for Ella's Big Chance in 2003. One of the loveliest things to do at Christmas is cuddle up and enjoy a good picture book together – and these classic stories have really stood the test of time. Content surprises are super annoying, especially when you’re 100+ pages in, so here’s my attempt to help you avoid that! With each review, I provide a Cleanliness Report, mentioning any objectionable content I come across so that parents and/or conscientious readers (like me) can determine beforehand whether they want to read a book or not. Perhaps it's the spirit of the season that permeates this book, even for those of us in the Southern Hemisphere.Shirley Hughes’s illustrations have the same effect as discovering an old reel of cine film buried in the loft. She won the Kate Greenaway Medal twice and was awarded the OBE for her distinguished service to children's literature. Her books include the wordless picture book Up and Up , collection of rhymes and poems Out and About , and for the very young The Nursery Collection .

We talk about the differences in the way these children celebrate Christmas in England and they celebrate Christmas in the states.This wonderful heartwarming story was read to me as a child and brings back so many happy memories as I now have the privilege of reading it to my niece. And be sure to check out my bio page to learn a little about me and the Picture Book/Chapter Book Calendars I sell on Etsy! Didn’t realize that until adulthood :) bought this book as soon as my daughter was born to read to her each Christmas season.
