Lucy & Tom at Christmas

Shirley Hughes
Published by:
Red Fox Picture Books
Suitable for ages:

This is a beautifully told, simple story about preparing for Christmas. It is told from the perspective of two young siblings.

What makes this discreet book exceptional are: its characters are realistic; it has gorgeous and plentiful illustrations; and the Christmas preparation have a Christian character. The family goes to Church; they set up a nativity scene; and they show love towards their grandparents and extended family; as well as loving charity towards lonely neighbours.

This is a lovely subtle book showing how western Christians celebrate Christmastime.
