Book Review - A Woodland Christmas Tale: Lift the Flap for Every Day of Advent

About the Book
This beautifully illustrated Advent calendar and storybook includes a charming Christmas tale featuring woodland animals plus a detail-packed two-page Christmas illustration that includes 24 flaps for children to lift and discover Christmas surprises. The woodland animals are planning a Christmas party, and Owl has invited a mystery guest. As young readers follow the excited woodland animals, they must try to guess the identity of Owl's mysterious guest. Color illustrations throughout.

My Take on the Book
Hannah Whitty has created a beautiful Advent Calendar story for young children. This sturdy book has detailed drawings of woodland creatures and 24 flaps for each day of Advent prior to December 25.

The story tells of Owl inviting a mystery guest to their celebration. All the animals help to prepare for the guest: decorating a tree, gathering food, and bringing the instruments for the music they will play for the special guest. And who is the special guest? It is Santa Claus. Santa arrives with gifts for the animals who have prepared for his arrival.

Each flap has a special gift that Santa Claus brought to the animals. You child will enjoy lifting a flap each day from December 1st to the 24th.
