Sunshine in my shadows

Welcome to sunshine in my shadows. This blog is my space to share all the stuff that makes up my every day life. Family, friends, crafts, recipes, books and all the little things that add 'sunshine to my shadows'. We all have a sprinkling of sunshine and an equal sprinkling of shadows in our lives. Hopefully you will find more sunshine than shadows to read about here and on the days when shadows fall, know that the sunshine is peeking just around the corner!

Santa needs a wee!

I love books, I love reading. I collect Children's Christmas picture books. Today I wanted to share a delightful children's book that I recently added to my collection.
The proper title of the book is "Father Christmas needs a wee" by Nicholas Allan.
It's a counting book with a funny story. We follow along as Father Christmas goes from house to house, on Christmas Eve, drinking all the various beverages left out for him by excited children.
Eventually the inevitable happens and.....Father Christmas needs a wee!
Preschoolers will love the rhyming text of this adorable book as well as the funny story.
The ending is just too cute and the illustrations charming!
I highly reccomend it for children aged 2-5 but the preschoolers will get most from it.
