Our 12 Books of Christmas
How many have you read?
10 Dec 2015
Christmas is getting so close we can almost taste the mince pies and eggnog. Presents are being wrapped, trees adorned with sparkly things of various shapes and sizes and the Christmas jumpers are out in force. But what of our beloved bookshelves at this time of year? In all the chaos of Christmas planning, attention must still be paid. So the Hodder team have resorted to making up some silly rhyming jingles about our favourite books (of course).
All together now . . . (big breath in)
