Great for inclusion!My daughter read this book from cover to cover and also to a sighted friend, which was great for inclusion as they both enjoyed the story and the tactile pictures.Parent

Due to high demand we are currently limiting all of our Christmas themed books to 1 per loan. We are working hard to change this but we don’t want any of our library members to miss out on receiving a Christmas book this year!
If you wish to order more than 1 Christmas book then please let us know in the notes of the order which one you would like first. When you have returned 1 Christmas book we will then send out the next one as soon as it is available.
Thank you for understanding. With Love from the Library Team.
It’s the night before Christmas and Holly is too excited to sleep. She keeps hearing noises – tinkling, whooshing, crackling, ‘Is that you, Father Christmas?’ she asks, but it isn’t. Will Father Christmas ever come?

Now we will work our way bit by bit, down the tree which grows wider and wider down to the base. First of all, feel round the pointy edges of its branches and over the rough surface of the whole fir tree. Did you feel a lot of blobs as you went round? These are the brightly coloured balls that hang on the tree. Let's start at the top again and trace over the first two balls below the fairy. The one on the left is silver and the one on the right is purple. Below these feel the red tinsel that stretches across the tree.
