Story Snug Advent Calendar 2016 – Christmas Book Alphabet

This year Story Snug is counting down to Christmas with a Christmas Book Alphabet Advent Calendar! We’re really excited about bringing you as many seasonal books as we possibly can!

Last year we had some fantastic festive book recommendations from authors, illustrators and book bloggers and many of their suggestions will be included on our Advent Calendar again this year.

We’ve had lots of fun finding festive and wintery books to correspond with each letter. Some posts have more than one suggestion but it wasn’t easy finding books for some of the letters. There are two letters that won’t be included at all as we couldn’t find any corresponding stories!

You can follow the hashtag #StorySnugAdvent on Twitter and all of the Story Snug Christmas Book Alphabet blogposts will be pinned onto our Pinterest Board.

It would be absolutely great to hear any suggestions that you have for our Christmas Book Alphabet. We would love to add as many Christmas and wintery books as possible. Please leave your suggestions at the end of each post and we’ll do our best to include them. Alternatively you can make suggestions on Twitter using the #StorySnugAdvent hashtag.


Our home Advent Calendar is also different this year. Our daughter has a Christmas Bedtime Story Advent Calendar. Each day she will open a door and find a Christmas picture book or story to read at bedtime. We can’t wait to show it to her!

    This looks a lovely idea. But it has reminded me that I forgot to read today’s chapter from our advent book – oops #readwithme

      Reading a chapter of an Advent book every day is a lovely idea 🙂

    This is a good idea. There must have been a lot of work in it! All I think of is G for Grinch!

      It’s taken a lot of time but it’s been fun to put together 🙂

    Wow! You are so organised to alphabetise! But I’ve told so many people about your printout as an alternative to wrapping and everyone thinks it’s a genius idea! Loving seeing your daily reads on your twitter! #readwithme

      I had a week off publishing blogposts at the end of last month to get the December ones set up but I’ve been working on this Advent Calendar since October! Thank you for sharing the Bedtime Story Advent Calendar 🙂

    This is such a wonderful idea! I bet the books really help you get into the spirit of things too. #MMBC

      I find that doing a blogpost a day during December always makes the month fly by!!

    Oh what a lovely idea. I wish my son would still let me read aloud to him.

      Thank you! I can’t imagine not reading aloud to my daughter, hopefully she’s let me for a long time to come! Does you son read aloud to you instead?
