This year we are doing the ABC’s Of Christmas so I tried to incorporate books that would fit in with each letter. I had trouble with a few so I added our favorite books on those days. Here are the books that you will see cropping up on my blog over the next month :-)
Some of these books may be out of print as I’ve had them for a while but I’ll link the best I can.
Books for 2011
A – Alabaster’s Song
D – Drummer Boy
E – The Happy Elf
The Gingerbread Pirates (a favorite from last year).
I – Snowmen at Christmas (I’m thinking icicle….)
J – Tiny Baby Jesus
N – The Nutcracker
W – Willy and May
X – The legend of the Poinsettia (for xmas around the world)
others we’ll be doing for a special day (if we have time):
Some Aussie Favorites:
An Aussie Day Before Christmas (I had trouble finding a link)
If you are looking to get a new book for Christmas this year, my favorite book of all time is “The Christmas Lizard” (see list above)…….Amazon only sells used copies now but it id well worth it! I so wish I had have bought 2 copies as mine is getting a little worn but the illustrations are BEAUTIFUL and the story is WONDERFUL and kind of ties Christmas all together by explaining the true meaning. We always save this one for Christmas eve :-)
I’d LOVE t hear what your favorites are! Leave a comment or link to your list in the comments below – I look forward to checking them out!
