Happy Christmas!

Dear readers,

It’s Christmas Eve already and we’re not quite sure where the time has gone this month. Holly has been singing in many church services and finished her last one tonight so we’re all pretty tired (and very familiar with Christmas carols!). Hopefully in the New Year we will be posting more, with fewer demands on our time.

In the meantime, Holly has written a special nonsense Christmas poem to share with you all.


There’s a big box for me

Under our sparkling tree

Big ones, small ones

A magical bird that sits by the side and hums

Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Cuckoo!

It’s winter and people have colds – achoo!

But the Christmas light it shines high

So happiness, you don’t have to try

But one thing we remember: Jesus was born

So now we all celebrate on Christmas morn.


Happy Christmas and all the best for 2014 from Holly and Sam!!!





Childtastic Books started out as a collaborative blog, written by me and my young daughter Holly. Now she's nearly a teen, she's off doing exciting and new things but I am still here, reading, writing and reviewing books for children and young adults of all ages. I miss her input but I hope she will pop in from time to time to do some guest posts! A little about me - I have just finished an MA in Children's Literature from the University of Roehampton (result pending, eeek) and am a part-time primary school librarian. The other part of my time is spent writing and editing, my own work and others, and I am waiting for my first non-fiction book to be published - a teacher resources pack for Handa's Surprise. I welcome comments and love to hear from visitors to this blog. Please note though that, because of time constraints, it is rare that I can read and review books from self-published authors. I receive so many requests and feel badly about not being able to keep up with them all. Thanks for visiting! Sam
