Countdown to Christmas book review

Christmas with Carlton Kids

Written by author Stella Caldwell, Countdown to Christmas (RRP £12.99) is a hardback, pop up book available from the Carlton Kids range of books on the Carlton Books website

The book is 64 pages of festive fun that evokes Christmas joy.

The book takes children on a festive journey to the frozen north to see how Santa and his elves prepare for Christmas. 

Exciting children and making this time of year even more magical the book gives children a sneak peek into the wonder of Santa's world. Peer into Santa's workshop, look inside the Reindeer Stables, and even blast off into the sky on Christmas Eve to see how Santa delivers all those presents.

Adding a sparkle if festive spirit the brilliant book is filled with pop-out flaps that allow you to fold illustrations out of the book. When they're all folded out, the book transforms into a charming festive display that seems to explode out of the book. This unique feature makes the book extra special.

The book is beautifully illustrated. It is festive and full of joy, colourful and magical. It features adorable characters such as iconic reindeers.

As well as cheerfully counting down to Christmas the book also has interesting facts.

The book is the perfect way to Countdown to Christmas with children, providing a hint of magic and joy.
