I love holiday books! Each season I bring out our themed collection to enjoy for a few weeks before putting them away again to keep it fresh for the following year. On December 1st, my boys get their first gift of the holiday – a new Christmas book. It’s a fun, simple tradition (and an easy way to support small business).
This year’s book was There’s An Elf In Your Book by Tom Fletcher and it’s been read 50 times already! Fletcher writes interactive stories and my boys LOVE them. If you’re looking to expand your home library, it’s a winner and here are some more favorites too!
