Today was one of my girls’ favorite days because today we got out the Christmas books in preparation for our countdown with Christmas books! My oldest immediately sat down and read for an hour, while my youngest couldn’t wait to have me read to her on the couch.
Since we put the Christmas books away for the rest of the year, the excitement they share as they open the Christmas book box each year is something like the meeting of an old friend.
“Oh I remember this one!”
“This is one of my favorites!”
” I forgot about that!”
While we used to wrap each Christmas book individually and place the books under the tree for our Christmas countdown, we now leave them unwrapped in the box so they can peruse them at their pleasure. Each night the girls then alternate choosing one of the books as a bedtime story. They love it!The excitement they share as they open the box is something like the meeting of an old friend.
