Bookbug Book of the Month: The Jolly Christmas Postman

The Jolly Christmas Postman
Category: Bookbug

It's Christmas Eve and the Jolly Postman is delivering greetings to various fairy-tale characters - there's a card for Baby Bear, a game appropriately called 'Beware' for Red Riding Hood from Mr Wolf, a get-well jigsaw for hospitalised Humpty Dumpty and three more surprise envelopes...

'If pushed to pick a favourite festive picture book, I would have no hesitation in going for Janet and Allan Ahlberg’s The Jolly Christmas Postman. Little ones will be fascinated by the tiny little envelopes, cards and letters. And it’s a perfect way for children to learn about fairy-tale characters in a fun and interactive way.

Quite rightly an absolute classic that never loses its magic.'

-Kirsty Sinclair, Head of Early Years (maternity cover)
