5 Days of Advent Calendars: Book Calendar
I couldn't decide on just one Advent Calendar this year so I decided we'd do not 1, not 2, but 5 different things. Overboard? Maybe. But we've had so much fun on day 1 that I'm glad I did.
When I pulled out and counted our Christmas books, I realized we have 16, which is the number of days we'll be home before driving south for the winter (or at least Christmas). Some are just about snow, but since it snows so much here I figured they'd be a good addition to the Christmas pile.
We've accumulated the books over the past year (we had about 3 last year). I picked up several from garage sales over the summer, bought some on Amazon and Gammie found a few at thrift stores throughout the year.
I'm not sure which ones are our favorites because we haven't read them, yet! But the 5 I listed have 4.5 to 5 stars on Amazon so it sounds like they're some good ones.
I wrapped each book and will set one book under the tree for Sweet P to unwrap each day. We'll then sit near the tree or in our reading corner and read the book for the day.
I'm excited to start this tradition with her because she LOVES books. I know she'll be excited about getting a new book to read each day this month.
We have a variety of books, but here are a few:
If You Take a Mouse to the Movies by Laura Numberoff
Little Porcupine's Christmas by Joseph Slate
The Big Snowball by Wendy Cheyette Lewison
Lift the Flap Nativity
One Night in Bethlehem by Tim Wesemann
