Thank you to everyone who has commented on our Christmas Book Advent Calendar thread. We have had so many comments and such a lot of great suggestions of Christmas books for toddlers to read. I'd hate for all the great recommendations to get lost in the comments section of that post so I thought I'd compile a list of them for everyone to share.

Below are the toddler Christmas books YOU recommended. If I've missed any great ones let me know and I'll add them to the list. I know I'll be off to the library or the book store tomorrow to grab copies of these! Don't forget that you can find our original list of recommended books here.

Both my boys love the 'Santa is Coming To..' range by Steve Smallman, in particular 'Santa is Coming to Newcastle'. They love being able to recognise the pictures and places mentioned in the book, and it is beautifully illustrated :) Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas

My daughter is a mad Peppa Pig fan so Peppas Christmas Wish is her favourite at the moment. I'd love to introduce her to the Jolly Christmas Postman though (my childhood favourite!)
