With this charming advent calendar, children can start getting ready for Christmas on December 1. Each day, they add a numbered sticker illustration to a lovely backdrop of a Victorian-era village shown on the inside front and back covers. On Christmas Day, they add the final touch — a brightly lit Christmas tree in the town square. To bring this enchanting village to life, simply remove the staples and sticker pages to use the 18 1/2" x 12 1/4" laminated backdrop shown on the inside front and back covers; then apply the 25 full-color sticker illustrations of shops, cottages, and other buildings to the appropriate numbered places on the background scene. Both children and adults will treasure this beautiful old-time village, complete with shops, cozily lit Tudor-style homes, simple country cottages, and a steepled church — the perfect setting for celebrating a joyful holiday season.
