One of the fun things we’ve done for the 12 days of Christmas is to wrap up 12 books and open one each day.  This way, there is still anticipation for a “present”, but it becomes something we all do together because we sit and read the story as a family.

Here is my list of books (By the way, I use the same books each year.  They come out for Christmas and go into a box for the rest of the year.):

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

The Advent Book – Jack and Kathy Stockman

What Nick and Holly Found in Grandpa’s Attic – Melody Carlson

The Crippled Lamb – Max Lucado

Great Joy – Kate DiCamillo

The Littlest Angel – Charles Tazewell

Silent Night – the Song and it’s Story – Margaret Hedges

God Came Near – Max Lucado

The Trees of the Dancing Goats – Patricia Polacco

First Noel – Jan Pienkowski

Mary Did You Know?  The Story of God’s Great Plan – Mark Lowry

By the way, I’d LOVE it if some of you would leave your favorite book titles for Christmas in the comments!!!
