Any suggestions (my daughter will be 2yr 1 month at Christmas) please?

We have the Night Before Christmas (my absolute fave - bought it for her last year!), The Snowman and A Christmas Carol. Any other age appropriate ideas?

I bloody love Christmas - cannot wait! grin
Thanks.

Haven't tried this but why don't you type in Christmas in Amazon under children's books and see what comes up. You can also read the reviews of the books that comes or try the book people. I think their christmas books are up.

Kipper's Christmas Eve is fab and should be right for this year (if not, def next year)

We also love the Night Before Christmas.

We also love Richard Scarry's the Night before the Night before Christmas ( which we read on the 23rd! ) and Olivia's Christmas. DD esp loves the bit where the baby pukes up blueberry pie. hmm

Here's the Olivia one.

I am now looking forward to reading it again. grin

Thanks everyone so far.

twolittledarlings - thanks - have actually done that already but got a bit fed up of trawling reviews and thought I'd ask on here for any recommendations too!

My DD has a "Maisy" Christmas book which is fun. Don't know if it's still available though.

The Book People have quite a lot of Christmas Books at really good prices at the moment, I just did a big shop, definately worth a look.
I love The Night Before Christmas. We read it every year at bedtime on Christmas Eve - have done very year. Even 10 year old dd still wants to listen. I love it!
Aliens Love Panta Claus is also well loved in our house!
