Christmas Book Advent

Several years ago we started doing a book advent to help us count down to Christmas. We do a few other advents, but this is the one the kids look forward to the most. I wrap up 24 books and each night we unwrap one book and read it together. I've had a few people ask me what books we use so I thought I would list out the books we read this year. I have acquired a nice little collection of Christmas books so I can pick and choose which ones I want to use each year. When I first started this I didn't even have enough books to make a 24 day advent, but we have 37 books now. The books have come from all over: the thrift store, teachers, family and each year I order a new book or two. On the inside cover of each one I write: The Jones Family and the date. If the book was a gift I put that person's name on the inside with the date.

I put our family favorite books in bold.

  1. The First Christmas
