Hands up if you love getting books for Christmas? I was dreading the onslaught of unnecessary toys, but was pleasantly surprised – not only were there only a couple of toys, with most of the boys’ presents being books, but the boys also thought this was the best thing ever! I love how much they love books. Oskar really wanted to show you all his haul AND he wanted to do it all by himself (so give the boy some views & likes on the video, if you can):

List of Books:
- Thorfinn the Nicest Viking…and the Gruesome Games, by David MacPhail & Richard Morgan – this is the second in the series, but if you want to start at the beginning the first book is Thorfinn and the Awful Invasion.
- Rico, Oskar und der Diebstahlstein, by Andreas Steinhöfel & Peter Schössow – This is the first book in the series, available in German only (via Amazon UK). The first book in the series however has been translated in to English and is available under the title “The Pasta Detectives”. It is a brilliant book about an unlikely friendship, and a bestseller in Germany.
- Die Muskeltiere auf großer Fahrt, by Ute Krause. This is the second in the series about a group of rodent friends who go on big adventures together. We’ve read the first and absolutely LOVED it (available in German only, via Amazon UK)
- Frühling im Holunderweg, by Martina Baumbach & Verena Körting. From a series of books about a group of friends who all live in the same house. Each book is set in a different season, this one is the Spring book (available in German only, via Amazon UK)
- Wissen. Was ist das? by Oscar Brenifier & Pascal Lamaitre – A great book to introduce kids to philosophy. This edition is available via Amazon Germany. There doesn’t seem to be an English translation, but if you search for “Oscar Brenifier” on Amazon UK it comes up with some other philosophy books for kids by him.
- Norse Myths: Tales of Odin, Thor and Loki, by Kevin Crossley-Holland and Jeffrey Alan Love – Oskar studied Vikings at school last year so this gorgeous edition of Viking tales was a no brainer.
- The Clue is in the Poo, by Andy Seed & Claire Almon – This is currently unavailable but looks like it’s be re-released in April. The catchy title really had my boys hooked, they have been studying it together throughout the holidays.
- Egypt Magnified, by David Long & Harry Bloom – A fun search & find book for older kids.
