At World of Books, we believe that a good story is the best gift of all. We also know that children are sometimes hard to settle down, especially in the festive season. Whether you have little ones who want their stories read aloud or teens who need personal space to read, a good book works wonders. This year we made a list (and checked it twice) of our top five kids’ Christmas books.
They say “never judge a book by its cover”, and while this may be true, there are those among us that will always look at the illustrations of a children’s book before even reading the blurb. We’ve handpicked a selection of our favourite illustrators and the books which showcase their most magnificent illustrations. In a lot of cases, its the perfect illustrations that make the books truly timeless.
