Storytime this time of year is extra special when we get to read Christmas stories as we count down to the big day.
We are delighted to introduce, Merry Christmas, Little Elliot by Mike Curato.
When chance blows a letter for Santa into Little Elliot and Mouse’s path, the two friends set out to discover what Christmas is all about – and make a new friend, too. A heartfelt celebration of the season of giving, perfect for sharing!
If you are looking for the perfect Christmas story then this is the one for you. We absolutely loved this book from start to finish! The illustrations are more beautiful with each page turn as it truly gives you the feel of Christmas. The story is heartwarming. The message of the true meaning of Christmas is captured beautifully and very simple for children to comprehend.
We loved this book so much that Nikki took it with her to class and her teacher read it to the whole class. We are happy to report that they all really enjoyed the book. It got the Kindergarten thumbs up which is the highest compliment you can get! 😉
We give Merry Christmas, Little Elliot 5+++ hearts out of 5! It truly warmed up all our hearts.
