I was hoping to post this earlier, but we can only do what we can do and feeding the children is more important than blogging. (It is, right?) My regular Monday post (What I Loved About Last Week) will (hopefully) appear on Tuesday.
Here's our first week of Advent books. As last
year, we'll be reading a picture book a day (well, often two; I have a
picture book problem) and I had to front load the library books again.
Christmas Story by Jane Werner Watson, illustrated by Eloise Wilkin, is just a sweet story of the Nativity. I expect my girls to love it.
and Find on the Night Before Christmas When Every Creature Is
Stirring. My mother picked this up at Goodwill or
someplace during the year and I added it to the mix because I think
First Son will enjoy it
Baby by Jan Brett, just for fun.
Spier's Christmas is a delightfully illustrated wordless
book. I got our copy from PaperBackSwap.com.
Joy by Kate DiCamillo is a new book for us this year. I hope it makes the children think about who Jesus came to save.
Alphabet by Robert Sabuda. Kansas Dad and I found
this on clearance years ago. The children love it every year, but I have
to put it up where they can't reach it or the artwork is destroyed.
Donkey's Dream by Barbara Berger
King Wenceslas - Our library copy is the one illustrated
by Christopher Manson
Small Miracle by Peter Collington is one of my favorite
books of all time; it's a joy to read each Advent.
the Animals' Eyes: A Story of the First Christmas by Christopher Wormell - my kids love all of his books.
