A Christmas Carol - Ladybird Classics {Books 4 Christmas}

This is one of those stories that are synonymous with Christmas.   The story itself is now 175 years old.  One of the most surprising things about reading A Christmas Carol is that it's not a very long book.  We read it out loud in less than a week a few years back. Last week I shared a beautifully illustrated version of A Christmas Carol and today I would like to share another gorgeous version specifically for younger children.   This one is by Ladybird Classics.

This beautiful hardback Ladybird Classic edition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is a perfect first illustrated introduction to the classic Christmas story for younger readers. It has been sensitively abridged and retold to make it suitable for sharing with young children from 5+, whilst retaining all the key parts of the story including the three spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future, little Tiny Tim and his father, Bob Cratchit and, of course, the old miser Ebenezer Scrooge. Detailed full-colour illustrations throughout also help to bring this classic tale to life.- Book Depository.
