Because we just pulled out our Christmas books… and because I had an extra of this darling one by Mary Engelbreit… I thought it would be fun to GIVE it away. “A Merry Little Christmas” has darling illustrations that celebrate simple joys of the Christmas season. It’s a cheery, short read, perfect for little ones.
To enter for the giveaway, all you have to do is make a comment on this post and tell me one (or more) of your favorite Christmas books to read to your children. I’m excited to get some ideas from you for some new fun books to read around the Christmas tree. I’ll pick a random winner on Sunday Evening (say … around 8ish when my tots are in bed).
To go along with this Christmas book GIVEaway, I also wanted to share this Advent Countdown with Books idea by Rebecca Cooper. She shares a list of some fun holiday books.
Rebecca writes: “A favorite tradition in our family is our Advent countdown with books. At the end of each November, I go to my bookshelf and pull out 24 holiday books that will be included in the year’s countdown to Christmas. … After collecting the books, I then wrap them all up with wrapping paper. The final book, The Night Before Christmas is reserved for December 24th and is wrapped uniquely from the others to distinguish it so that it isn’t accidentally opened before Christmas Eve. … Once all the books are wrapped, they are placed in a special basket that is placed in our living room. The children take turns selecting a book each night and unwrapping it. Then we read it together as a family.”
Happy Christmas and Happy Holiday Reading ’round the Christmas Tree. See ya back here on Sunday.
