I'm sharing my favorite holiday tradition, but to be totally honest, with my little girl just under 2, we are juuuuuust starting to come up with a few for our little family of three!
Here's a little pic of our sweet baby K !
When I was pregnant with K, I learned about a book advent calendar and I just knew this would be a GREAT tradition for us! So.....I started my collection of Christmas children's books! You see, you wrap up all 24, and your children will open one every night until Christmas and you can read it together. How fun is that? (worth the effort of the collection process I think!)
(I have had this pic downloaded on my computer long before I had a blog and have no source, so sorry!)
I have visions of the Christmas book basket by the tree, and baby Kendall asking me if she can go open tonight's book for us to read together! (right now she just says "book!")
So far I have 13 in my collection and they are mostly board books and ones that are age appropriate for K but I hope to add a few more over the next two years to make my collection complete! Maybe Santa will bring us a few more! (wink, wink) This way by the time baby K really understands the tradition, we will have all 24! (fingers crossed)
I thought it might be fun if all of you gave some names of classic Christmas or holiday books to share so that if you would like to start your advent book collection, you could have some books to look out for!
Someone also told me that using the Christmas story from the Bible is a great book #24...
What are your favorite Christmas books?
