Christmas stories for children

What better way to spend the build-up to Christmas than by reading your way through a festive collection of Christmas stories with your son or daughter? Perfect for sharing with a child, the Book People has many Christmas books which not only explain what Christmas is about but also will help build excitement for the most wonderful time of the year. Whether you want to introduce children to the nativity or explain just who Father Christmas is, we have a Christmas book for you – many feature familiar characters and there are also new friends to make… Here are some of our favourite festive stories – and you can buy them all from the Book People for a great price!

The Mr. Men and Little Miss characters are getting ready for their Christmas Party and everyone’s invited – but Little Miss Shy is feeling nervous… Will she be too shy to go? A fantastic story starring Roger Hargreaves’ characters, this will help children who are a little bit wary of the huge event  enjoy Christmas.

With a beautiful plush toy included, young readers will love meeting Pip, The Polar Bear Who Saved Christmas as he heads off to the North Pole to meet Santa, while young readers who are excited about the visit of Father Christmas will be delighted with the funny, interactive Santa’s Beard. Santa has had enough of his itchy, fluffy beard during summer so the beard decides to fly off – he tries various different faces (and maybe a bottom or two) but soon realises there’s no place quite like home…

Frozen is still phenomenally popular with children of all ages and what better accompaniment to their Anna doll, Elsa dress and Olaf cuddly toy than two books about the land of Arendelle! We have a beautiful hardback that tells the famous Disney story inspired by The Snow Queen and an Essential Guide to all the beloved Frozen characters. Another book inspired by the serene beauty of winter time is our very beautiful edition of Walter de la Mare’s poem Snow. A gift book of the highest quality, it’s an ode to winter and delightfully festive.

We also have classic stories in the shape of Janet and Allan Ahlberg’s The Jolly Christmas Postman, Shirley Hughes’ Alfie’s Christmas and the 10 books featured in our Big Box of Christmas Stories.
