A very special visitor by Rebecca Geelings

Ill. by Karen Sapp. Egmont, 2010. ISBN 9781405256193.
(Age 2-4) In this book about the magic of Christmas, there is a journey through many things that make Christmas special. Snow has covered everything, a church bell chimes and happy people sing carols. But best of all there is a very special visitor to delight everyone.
This board book contains flaps to lift which young children will enjoy. The flaps are cleverly hidden among the illustrations by Karen Sapp, and may provide a fascinating challenge for toddlers when they first listen to the book The last two pages have flaps containing Christmas tree decorations, which are lifted out of the book to place on the Christmas tree. I think that could be a very enjoyable Christmas activity for parent and child.
