  1. So many great books—we have several of those but do not have the one by Tomie dePaola so I will have to check that out!

  2. I absolutely love this idea and it goes along with our post as well about our top picks for this season to get kids more excited about reading. I’d love to share this! Can we use as a Guest post or a share?

  3. so fun!! this is such a great advent idea! my mom has done this for my nieces before!!

  4. This is so fun! I love your book suggestions. We got Little J a few books for Christmas, but only one of them is holiday-themed. But last year he got a few good Christmas books as gifts, and I can’t wait to read them with him as Christmas gets closer! I am definitely pinning this one to save all these good book ideas!

  5. This is such a great idea! I can’t wait to try it with my youngest as my boys think they are too old 🙁

    1. You may be surprised, I have a friend with older children and they were begging to sit near their mom while she read some children’s books to her youngest. She thought that was too funny that even her tweens still wanted to be read to! 🙂

  6. What a lovely idea and tradition! I have a Christmas story book that we read together with my son always before Christmas. It has several stories, songs and poems. It was first mine when I was a child and it has been a lovely tradition to pass down to him.

    1. That is so special that you have a book to pass on to your son, I bet that is such a treasured keepsake and tradition for you two. Thanks for sharing Joanna!

  7. I’ve seen this idea before and think it’s great, we’ll definitely be doing it when we have kids!

  8. Hello. I found your list and wanted to tell you about a new book I just found. It’s called the Old Shepherd’s Tale. I’m surprised I haven’t found it before – I really search the Christmas books on Amazon and never ran across this one until it was in the bargain outlet. It’s a great story of the stables and showing kindness to the animals.
