Christmas Wonder by Vikki Conley & Cheryl Orsini (Affirm Press)

What happens in the seven days leading to Christmas? The excitement that fills these days is what this festive book offers in a short punchy rhyming text.

Both text and illustrations showcase the Australian Christmas traditions, as the colourful spreads follow a family through the hot summer season. The whole family, including the pets, feel the cheerfulness of the holiday season. There is so much detail packed into these bright pages. Days crossed out on a calendar, bells & angels on the tree, Nana & baking, lots of decorating, family & friends, barbeque on the beach, pavlova, carols by candlelight on a warm night, ripping the paper off presents on Christmas morning, and garden lunches with crackers, salad, ham & fish!

See if you can spot all the special Australian Christmas items in the colourful folds of this book. This is a wonderful picture book to read during the festive season, definitely one to reread every year and is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and the joy of Christmas Wonder in your heart.

Suggested age: Read aloud to 3+. Read by self 5+. Recommended for a beginner reader.
