Book Tree Advent Calendar

A few months ago our daughter discovered that our two little men, Christmas and Snowy, had help with the book Advent Calendars that Story Snug has done for the previous two years so now it’s time for something different – a book tree Advent Calendar.

This year Christmas and Snowy will watch as every day a different Christmas book is unwrapped. I’ve made a Christmas Tree Book Advent Calendar and have wrapped English and German Christmas books – some new, some old and some from the library. We have Santa, we have Mog, we have The Jolly Christmas Postman, aliens and two Christmas stories by Astrid Lindgren, a current favourite author here.

Here’s the full list of books that our daughter will be unwrapping;

  1. Jingle Bells by Mick Inkpen

  1. I love the idea of a book advent calendar – so much better than the ones you can buy with the little chocolates in. Some fab books here too 🙂
