Christmas Book Advent

Yay!! It’s December 1st! Time to start all of those advent calendars! 

Christmas-Book-Advent
We are doing another book advent this year and I have been meaning to share our books with you.  We kept a lot of the same books from last year of course, but have taken some of the younger books away and added in some new ones.   {There is a printable list of our favorite kids’ Christmas books below!}   If you are just starting your collection, you can just do a 12 Days of Christmas advent and add on to it each year.  Scholastic Books has a great assortment of Christmas books at very reasonable prices and you can always check out the local library for some of the books as well.  

Here is what we have wrapped up….
We are also reading a few chapter books throughout the month:

The Magic Treehouse: Christmas in Camelot by Mary Pope Osborne
The Santa Paws 2 by Catherine Hopka
Warton’s Christmas Eve Adventure by Russell Erikson
Junie B – Jingle Bells Batman Smells by Barbara Park

There is also a printable version for you so you can take it with you!

    I love this. I found this idea on Pinterest awhile back and spent most of my November preparing for my daughter’s book advent:) I didn’t do Christmas themed books, but books in general for her.

    Thanks for this post. Such a cute idea for the little ones. We keep all of our Christmas books in a box that we only get out in December and it does make them seem more special and relevant. Love it!

    One of our favorites is, “Bear Stays Up For Christmas” by Karma Wilson & Jane Chapman. Thanks for sharing! I think I’ll give this a try!

    We did this for our daughter this year but didn’t wrap them. (since we mostly used books from the library) We put them into a “santa sack” that the big man dropped off with our elf on the shelf. Then she gets to pick one at bedtime. My favorite is The Mitten by Jan Brett.
