Getting ready for Christmas with Clifford has never been more fun! With 30 lift-the-flaps, this new Clifford title is sure to be a Christmas treat! It's Christmas Eve on Birdwell Island, and Clifford and his friends are very, very busy. They buy Christmas presents, decorate the tree, and play in the snow before they go to bed.
While Clifford is sleeping, he has a Christmas dream: "What will Santa bring for me?" he wonders. What is Clifford dreaming about? To find out, take a look under the flaps! The next day, everyone has fun opening the presents that Santa has brought.
My mum gave my eldest daughter Clifford's Christmas Presents for her first Christmas. She was too small then to appreciate it then but the following Christmas (17 months old) it was a huge hit. We have now had the book four years and although she has outgrown it it remains a favourite with her little sister (just turned three) and my younger home-based care-kids.
The storyline is very basic. It's Christmas time and Clifford is helping choose presents and decorate the tree. The exciting factor about the book is the flaps. The reader is asked questions throughout about where something could be or what is hiding? After listening to the story a couple of times the kids are yelling the answer at me. There are several flaps on each page which adds to the excitement.
After all the time this book has been handled by toddlers I can't believe what good condition it is still in. I haven't repaired any of the flaps. It definitely helps that it is a board book. This book is a great Christmas gift for a child around 18 months of age.
