It’s not easy to find a no chocolate advent calendar !
It makes me sad that my kids get so excited about a chocolate each day during advent and race to open their little window not thinking for a moment what picture is behind the door or the story being told. The eye is on the chocolate prize.
Well this year I have been sent two gorgeous Advent calender books to review and the children will each have one of these instead. They are so sweet.
Countdown to Christmas (£5.99) Lion Hudon is an A4 size board book that tells the story of the nativity then opens up ina large scene of Bethlehem with advent calender. Inside you can also find a large nativity scene to colour which is seperate and can be stick on the wall. You get so much for your money and it is a beautiful advent calander to have on display. A really good way to share the story with your child too.
My Advent Calender Christmas Book is another lovely unusual offering for advent. The front the the little hardback is an advent calendar and inside is the story of Jesus from Mary being visited by the angel to the wise men arriving. It’s very sweet and lovely for a little one to have during advent. This book is also £5.99 form Lion Hudson.
