You’ll never guess what: the dog outside the Fairfield train station is a reader! You may have noticed that last week, she got a beautiful, red, Christmassy necklace, which she’ll be wearing with pride in the countdown to Christmas, so we thought we’d ask her to review some Christmas books for our blog. Here is her guest post:
The Twelve Dogs of Christmas – This book is so much fun. Woof! I love all the bright colours and scampering antics of the different dogs on each page. If you have a soft spot for dogs then you will really love the cute illustrations. There are dalmations, daschunds, collies, pugs and more. There is also a really big focus on yummy Christmas food which we all know is something all dogs love. Woof woof. Five bones out of five for this one!

That Christmas Feeling – this book is new this year and I absolutely loved it. It’s written for children aged up to about 5 but I think dogs (of any age) would really enjoy it as well. It’s all about how to get that tingly, buzzy, woofy feeling in the lead up to Christmas. The story follows two children and their dog Shortbread. Shortbread is ace! Woof woof! Another five bones rating for this one.

The 12 Days of Christmas – I have to admit I was a little disappointed to discover that there were NO DOGS in this book at all. It had quite a few birds in it though, and I am I quite a fan of watching birds. Woof! I am learning to count at the moment so the counting aspect was good too. And the illustrations are by a Melbourne artisit. We love local 🙂 This one gets a solid four out of five bones from me (it would have been five bones if there was a dog).
