Here are some of Minipreneur’s favourite picture books for Christmas.

The Burpee Bears by Joe Wicks & Paul Howard

Minipreneur loved this book. From the nation’s favourite PE teacher, The Burpee Bears is infused with Joe’s signature passion, energy, and sense of fun with stories and characters that jump off the page. Children will laugh out loud when they recognise the ups and downs of everyday family life and will delight in the Burpee Bear characters, who bring a little bit of Wicks magic and a whole lot of Joe energy to each and every page. The Burpee Bears will touch your hearts and get families moving together and reading together.

Dogs in Disguise by Peter Bently & John Bond

Featuring jaunty rhyming text and brilliantly witty illustrations, this is a joyful peek into the crazy antics of all sorts of dogs in disguise! Dressing up in clothing they find at home, these adventurous pooches blend into the crowd at all the places dogs aren’t allowed, like the store, the cinema and the swimming pool! But, not all of their disguises go quite to plan, with hilarious results. This laugh-out-loud picture book had Minipreneur giggling all the way to bedtime!

An Odd Dog Christmas by Rob Biddulph

Minipreneur loved reading Odd Dog Out by Rob Biddulph so couldn’t wait to get his little hands on this follow-up book that’s a gloriously festive illustrated story about friendship and the real meaning of Christmas. This is the perfect story for children aged 4+, fans of Odd Dog Out and anyone who loves Christmas! Brimming with Rob Biddulph’s trademark warmhearted humour.

Green is for Christmas by Drew Daywalt & Oliver Jeffer

Green Crayon is certain that he is the only Christmas colour in the box. Of course, Red, White, Silver and even Brown have something to say about that. This was the perfect story to read to Minipreneur at Christmas time.

Clarice Bean: Think Like an Elf by Lauren Child

Although written for older children, I loved reading Clarice Bean: Think Like an Elf by Lauren Child. The one and only Clarice Bean is back to save her family’s Christmas in this sparkling story of joy, goodwill to all peoplekind, and some very Clarice catastrophes, perfect for sharing with all the family! Wrap yourself in the warmth and wit of former Children’s Laureate Lauren Child and be transported by the love and laughter that is Christmas with the utterly irreplaceable Clarice Bean.
