For the past 4 years I have wrapped 25 books and gave them to the girls one at a time as a December book Advent… until this year. It’s hard to let a tradition go, but eventually you outgrow them and I am learning (slowly) that it’s okay. Instead of wrapping the books this year, (which I didn’t miss one little bit) I put them out for the girls to enjoy the whole month.
Since they are both reading now, they get far more out of this new approach than unwrapping one book a day. Our books are a mix of board books, story books, whimsical stories, and several that speak of what Christmas is really all about. Some of them we have grown out of, others we have grown into. Today I want to share with you a few of our favorites hoping they’ll become favorites of yours too.
Mortimer’s Christmas Manger / The First Christmas / The Mouse Before Christmas / Olive, the Other Reindeer / The Christmas Lizard / Llama Llama Holiday Drama / Room for a Little One / Christmas Stories for Bedtime / My Christmas Gift to Jesus / The Biggest Snowman Ever / The Polar Express / The Gift Giver
