Another book in the wonderful pairing that is Andreae/Dodd, I Love You, Father Christmas features Dodd's beautifully charming illustrations and Andreae's equally charming text that resonates so beautifully with young ones.
Written in rhyming text, the story follows a young tot and his lead-up to Christmas day, with such delights as fruit mince pies, get-togethers with friends, walking in the snow, and of course the delicious anticipation of Christmas Eve.
A lovely book for Northern Hemisphere residents, and for those who love a traditional white festive season. The book is also available in hard cover and as a board book.
