Little Robin Red Vest
Every time I see a Robin I am reminded of this heart-warming story of friendship and kindness. Jan Fearnley’s illustrations are delightfully bright and cosy even as she creates scenes of snowy winter landscapes, it is sure to become an annual family favourite.
One frosty evening, a week before Christmas, Little Robin washes and irons seven warm vests for the chilly nights to come. As the days go by, he comes across lots of shivering animals and kindly offers them his vests to wear. But – oh no! – on Christmas Eve, Little Robin is cold and alone with no vests left! That is, until a special someone arrives to reward his kindness . . .
The story captures the joyful spirit of this little robin and uses it to remind us that generosity will bring us greater happiness than want. A true Christmas classic with a lovely traditional vibe.
