I am determined this year to wrap our Christmas books and read one a night to the kids. Although some version of this has been done in our home, the books have not been wrapped, and as usual I have lacked consistency - could I blame that on all those birthdays? Typically I like to add one new book to the mix (and then stock up on the 1/2 price sale after Christmas).
This is my 2011 addition:
The Carpenter's Gift: A Christmas Tale about the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree by David Rubel illus by Jim LaMarche. This was recommended by my school librarian who I believe saw it on 7 Impossible Things. I also nerded it up by ordering the Rockefeller Center Tree puzzle (only $5 at B&N).
Also, I meant to blog about this BEFORE Thanksgiving, but we were plagued with a nasty stomach bug. Ew. Fans of author & illustrator Melissa Sweet - ahem, Elizabeth - have you seen this?
Add that to your list too!
Do you have any Christmas reading traditions? Any holiday books catching your eye? Do tell.
