12 Days of Christmas Books Advent Calendar

By: Robin Stevenson
Over the years my family has amassed a collection of Christmas-themed books. My daughter has outgrown some of them, but I can't bear to part with favourites like Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas, Olivia Helps With Christmas and If You Take a Mouse to the Movies (Special Christmas Edition). So last year we started a Christmas Book Advent Calendar. Now we don't have 24 holiday-themed books, but we do have quite a few, so last night I wrapped the books in leftover Christmas wrap and numbered each one. Starting tonight she will unwrap number 12 and keep reading one each night until Christmas Eve. That night the wrapped package is actually two books,  The Night Before Christmas (Jan Brett edition) and The Nativity Story. My daughter looks forward to being surprised by the book she unwraps and I love that the books that she enjoyed when she was younger are still part of our holiday tradition. Does your family have a favourite Christmas-themed book that I should be adding to our list?
