This spectacular lift-the-flap Christmas alphabet story is a book, a fold-out play-scene, and a beautiful festive frieze to decorate your room! Everyone is busy on Christmas Street! Who is baking gingerbread? Who is wrapping presents? And who's that coming down the chimney? Find out in this perfect Christmas gift book, the follow-up to Alphabet Street. With bright, cheerful artwork from Ingela P Arrhenius, illustrator of the bestselling Felt Flaps and Peekaboo series, and a clever rhyming text from Jonathan Emmett. Read the rhyming story, lift the festive flaps, learn the letters of the alphabet and seasonal words and then, when you're finished, flip the book and have fun with the giant snowy concertina play-scene on the reverse! With two big sturdy flaps on every spread, this is a charming Christmas alphabet book that little ones will return to again and again.



I shared this with a two-year-old who completed adored it - so will older and younger children! This little package covers so many things - it teaches the alphabet and the letters' sounds, it has a great rhyming text to read aloud, and it is both a book and a rather lovely toy! 

The book's pages pull out to create a sturdy street scene. Each of the shop fronts has a flap that opens to reveal a letter and some rhyming text (O for Ornaments, P for Presents in the 'Perfect Presents' shop front, for example). Once they've spent a while exploring the 'street' and the gorgeous shop fronts on their own, little ones will want to curl up on a lap to turn the pages and lift the flaps together. What a lovely way to build excitement about Christmas, too!

I shared this book with my reception class (ages 4 & 5). It is a delightful, beautiful alphabet lift the flap, fold-out story book which captured all the children’s attention. It is perfect for little ones that are learning the alphabet, are keen to explore and whom you want to develop a love of books.
