Christmas time is celebrated in this vibrant, colourful book, We’re Going On A Sleigh Ride with lots of fun and excitement. Designed for the younger reader, the story is noisy and entertaining, with details for the keen eye to follow.

At last, the sleigh is ready, packed by an eager group of bunnies. On the first page there are flaps to lift which show the number of presents the reader has found.

As the pages are turned children are introduced to many animals. “Watch out for the penguins Slip, Slap, Slide.”  On alternate pages, there are flaps to reveal more presents. The bunnies hold on tightly as the sleigh nearly misses the snow geese.

The repetitive text will soon be repeated by a young reader and the illustrations show exactly what is happening.

We’re Going On A Sleigh Ride is a lively, friendly cheerful story that will delight most young people with the added joy of lifting the flaps to reveal an idea. This is a lovely seasonal story from favourite children’s author Martha Mumford.
