Each year, I choose 24 holiday books, and wrap them individually and place them under the tree. Each night, we take turns unwrapping one book and reading it for our bedtime story to get us in the holiday mood. For Christmas Eve, we always unwrap 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. (I wrap it in different paper from the rest so we know to save it for that night.) We have a good mix of books, religious ones about the birth of the Savior, stories about love and sharing, funny Santa books, gingerbread men, simple board books for the younger ones, and longer story books for the older ones. I hope to incorporate a few preschool activities into our day after reading a few of the favorites.
Here are just a few of my favorites for the season:
Happy Holidays and Happy Reading!
