25 Days of Christmas:25 Holiday Children's Books

Every Year our family has a tradition of each day in December, doing a special activity to celebrate the season.  It can be something really simple, or more elaborate.  We try to include a variety of things, from movie nights, special outings, doing good for others, crafts, and the always favorite.... dance parties.  We have a special Advent Train and write the activity for the day on a piece of paper for the kids to find (more on that soon!).  It is something we have done now for 4 years.   

So this 25 Days of Christmas series is going to document that. Showing 25 things from different categories.  

Up first.  Children's Christmas Books.  We love to read, and each night before bed, we spend on average 30 minutes snuggled up on the bed reading to/with the kids.  During the holidays each night we include a Christmas Story.
