The Jolly Christmas Postman by Janet and Allan Ahlberg

As many of you will have seen, our hall looks amazing again- this year with scenes from ‘The Jolly Christmas Postman’.







This book is one of three by the author and illustrator team, Janet and Allan Ahlberg. Each book is told in rhyme and follows the postman as he delivers letters on his route. 


Children (and adults!) love these books as the letters in his post bag are there to be explored as he delivers them. You can play with the jig-saw the Postman brings for Humpty Dumpty, read the letters and cards written to other fairy tale characters and delight in the gentle humour of the whole story. 


‘The Jolly Christmas Postman’ ends with the Postman delivering a very special card to a very special person- who then offers him a lift home!



Fantastic books to give at any time of year, but The Jolly Christmas Postman is perfect for this season! Happy Christmas, everyone!
