An Advent Calendar of Christmas Books: I'd like to share some ideas for incorporating beautiful Christmas picture books into your family traditions during this time of anticipation. It takes a little planning, but it's worth the forethought and effort...

1- You need to determine how many books you need - this will depend on how many days leading up to Christmas you'd like to do this activity (during all of Advent - from November 15, if you're Eastern Orthodox, or the 25 days of December - or maybe just the last week leading up to Christmas).
2- Need book recommendations? Click here for my Christmas Book Resource Page, if you need book recommendations.
4- Decide how you want to display your Advent Calendar of Books. Some families put them in a basket, wrapped or unwrapped; others wrap them up and number them so their children can open one each night. Either way, it's a fun read aloud activity for the whole family!
5- Challenged for time? If you don't have time to get all these books, you might be interested in one Advent Storybook, with a reading for each night of December, or The Story of Christmas, a book set and advent calendar. You can find both on Amazon - pictured below.
