Policeman Pete and the Christmas Tree A Barbara Ann Book #Blog Tour @policemanpete @AuthorightUKPR

Firstly I just want to say thank you to Rachel Gilbey of Authoright,  for inviting me to be part of this lovely blog tour for The Policeman Pete Books, in the Barbara Ann Book series. This is my fourth book review in the series but I keep up with the books on the tour every day. You will find my reviews every Wednesday and Sunday, while the tour runs. Enjoy!

A delightful set of children’s stories following the fictional character Policeman Pete in his daily activities. All the books within the series are based on true occurrences that have taken place in Saddleworth, a civil parish made up of 7 villages nestled within the foothills of the Pennines in North West England

Book 13 remembers how in the past the Christmas trees were all delivered to the various Saddleworth villages. I remember my own children found this to be a most exciting time as in their minds, this tradition depicted the start of the festive season.

Today Christmas has come early for Books from Dusk Till Dawn on this blog tour.

Well Christmas is quickly coming a round for the people living in Diggle Village as the council put up the Christmas tree. Pete has lots of work to do before the lights go on but nothing ever goes to plan.

This is a lovely little seasonal book to enjoy with the little ones as Christmas approaches. The book demonstrates again how to help each other and how special occasions are shared by people we love and know. It is accompanied by lovely simple and brightly coloured pictures that make it easy to retell the story by the child too.

I thank Rachel Gilbey of Authoright for an ARC of this book for review purpose that I have chosen to review.


Today’s Home Safety Tip

8   Policeman Pete says NEVER answer the front door. Always go and get mummy or daddy and let them open the door. This is because you do not know who it could be and it just might be a bad man or lady.
