The Christmas StoryMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
I love touchy feely books and this new hardback tabbed board book of the Christmas story is very definitely touchy feely! From the front cover and all the way through to the back cover. Rough, ribbed bits, different patterns on different people's clothing, raised bumps and lumps and shapes on the roads, the trees and the houses just make this book a joy to hold and stroke and feel for any child (or adult) and would be brilliant with any person for whom sensory imput is a boon.
There are six stories in the book, each one moved onto by the great picture tab at the side, and they cover the Christmas story from the Annunciation (Mary and The Angel) right through to the escape to Egypt (The Long Way Home). They are fun and engaging just as the pages are.
A brilliant addition to the Christmas books out there and one definitely for those for whom touch is a special delight.
