Christmas Books for Christmas

My computer tells me that there are 30 days left till the jolly red fat man plops down the chimney so here are some of the Christmas books for this year.

An Aussie Night Before Christmas Pops Up! Kilmeny Niland & Yvonne Morrison (Scholastic)
This classic aussie picture book is now a wonderful pop-up book that kids and collectors too will love! The pop-ups, sliding tabs and fold-outs are sturdy. There are surprises on every festive spread - even Santa's boxer shorts!
This story of course is the wonderful aussie verison of Clement Moores tradional verse written in 1822.

Fair Dinkum Aussie Christmas (Book & CD) Colin Buchanan, Greg Chapman & Kilmeny Niland (Scholastic)
Want to sing some rolicking Aussie carols this Christmas?
Then this is the book & CD for you where you can singalong to the songs by Bucko and Champs, the creators of the hugely popular 'Aussie Christmas' albums. And if by chance you don't know the words to Deck the Shed with Bits of Wattle or the other songs then you can follow along with the picture book. This book and CD will have everyone joining in for a corker of an aussie Christmas singalong. As the swagman at the gate said on the first day of Christmas - Have a ripper Christmas mate!

Aussie Jingle Bells Activity & Sticker Book Colin Buchanan & Nick Bland (Scholastic)
Here's the book to entertain the kids (both big and little) after all the present unwrapping and festing has been done. There are mazes, word finds, join the dots, puzzles galore, stickers to create a barkyard Christmas gathering and even Christmas Day recipes to make ... Far out! Educational activities even on Christmas Day!

Santa's Aussie Holiday Maria Farrer & Anna Walker (Scholastic)
So what does Santa do when he isn't getting ready for Christmas? He travels around Australia of course enjoying our down-under activites as he visits a few our of iconic places!!

Billabong Bill's Bushfire Christmas Kelly Gardiner & Jobi Murphy (Random House)
Recent Aussie Christmas times have had the bushfire or two so this Christmas picture book surely fits here as the drama of a fiery outback Christmas is brought to life!
