Christmas Magic

An amalgamation of my first five stories. Join Sid the ant as he helps Santa to deliver Christmas presents!

I began this audiobook by drawing a map to see how I could link all of my characters together in one story for Christmas! I decided to begin with the first character I invented, Sid the ant. The idea was that he would travel through some of the locations from the other stories and end up on Jimi's farm (from the story Jimi & his friend Joe).

I worked, with producer Adie Hardy, on editing together not only the stories and characters but also the compositions. This was a major task!!! ???? I brought back all of the cast members, who featured in the previous stories, to make cameos in this story which was wonderful!

I particularly love the Christmas song in this audiobook because many of the cast members are singers and it was a lot of fun listening to them singing in their character's voices and not their own voices! Find out more about this story here Book Details.

Christmas School Performances

Christmas Magic props - little colourful Christmas presents, stickers and flyers for the children image

I was invited to take part in Treetops Nursery Christmas Performance and Christmas Magic was the perfect story. The teachers took copies of the song's lyrics so they could teach the children how to sing it. I brought little prop presents. The children marched (like the ants) through the various scenes in the story to deliver the presents for the animals on the farm.

It was absolutely brilliant and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Some of the children even got their siblings involved. It was lucky I brought lots of extra presents!

This audiobook can't be done in Storytime at any other time of the year. December is a busy time for me! I try to visit as many nurseries and schools as I can with Christmas Magic. It's an excellent story for school Christmas performances.

Feedback

I was very happy when Shelf Full of Books awarded this audio story with a 5 Star Rating and claimed I had created another winner in this audiobook for children. Bound4Escape also recommends this story and it's lovely that reviewer Dawn Heslin thinks young children and their parents will definitely enjoy this audiobook.

You've got to have Christmas Magic at Christmas!
