Top Ten Children's Christmas Books - Countdown to Christmas

Christmas is for children. Those who argue that it is for adults too are very, very wrong: it's just that, at heart, many of us are still children. Santa, fairy lights, the magic of Christmas Eve: every bit is designed to capture the hearts of children and, working in a primary school, I get to capture every second. 

Here are my top ten Christmas books for children, rated by the children themselves, so that you can share the magic with your children (and yourself) this Christmas. After all, there is nothing quite like the gift of a good book...
