It's Christmastime: Christmas Book Advent Countdown

We did this last year and had so much fun with it,
that I had to do it again this year.
I already had enough books last year -
perks of being a former 2nd grade teacher -
but I wanted to collect some new ones this year.
So when it was time for Scholastic Book orders,
you know I grabbed some of $3 deals :)

I got wrapping paper at the 99 cent store and I love
how it turned out.
Last year I used the same wrapping paper to wrap each
book, but this year I wanted it to look just a little
more colorful and exciting.

We are five days in and the kids are loving it.
If you haven't started yet,
never fear!
You could start on the 12th or 13th,
depending when you want to end,
and do the Twelve Days of Christmas.
There's still time!!!

Some of the books we used this year:
The Jolly Christmas Postman
Snowflake Bentley
Fancy Nancy: Splendiferous Christmas
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Merry Christmas, Big Hungry Bear!
Dinosaur Christmas
The Tale of Three Trees
Ordinary Mary's Extraordinary Deed

And remember, if you don't own 24 Christmas books,
you can use winter books, holiday books,
or even check them out from the library!
