We have a few books that I put away every January and don’t pull out until Advent.  In case you haven’t met these, my book-friends, I’d like to introduce you:

What are your favorites that I may not know?

  1. Silver Packages by Cynthia Rylant
    This makes me cry every year. My children now turn and watch me when I get to “the page” that does it.

    Emma’s Christmas by Irene Trivas
    A funny take on the 12 days of Christmas. Great illustrations.

  2. Have you read “24 Days Before Christmas” by Madeleine L’Engle? In it, the family does a different thing every day of Advent, in order to get ready for Christmas. It’s a very sweet story, and aimed at younger kids than the rest of her Austin family series.

  3. We just finished The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. You know what story I really really hate? That stupid “Gift of the Magi” one. Talk about an exercise in futility. Maybe we’ll read it anyway just so I can bag on it.
