Christmas Story Advent Calendar - for toddlerspreschoolers

We love reading around here!  And we love Christmas books.  I saw the idea of reading a book-a-day in preparation for Advent last year, but we didn’t have enough books to make it work.  But this year, we have lots of good Christmas books and plan to add a few more.  I think we are going to try to do a simple activity to go along with each of the books this year in preparation for Christmas.  The  girls love reading these books so much that I have to hide them really well in order to make it a surprise each day.  They will seek out the books and already be familiar with them before their place in the Advent calendar.

 

Here are the books we are including in our book-a-day Advent.  Most of the titles are preschool to early elementary age books.
