Dream Snow by Eric Carle, beautifully illustrated of course! At the end, press a button for a bit of magic. This was a sweet nighttime read. Wombat Divine by Mem Fox. Wombat loves Christmas and wants to be in the Nativity play, but what role will he, and all the other Australian animals, take? I just looked on Amazon, and yes, Wombat Divine I love that title is available. Thanks for the recommendation! Thanks for these suggestions.
I just finished wrapping our books this weekend. Anandi — YES I like that I am using up all the terrible wrapping paper and random stuff my mother in law gave me. Alissa — the one downside of my version is that we will have to take turns 3 of the 4 kids — the baby neither knows nor cares.

Expensive and triple the wrapping! Thanks for the list! I buy new holiday books each year, especially as I find our older ones either too annoying or too babyish. I also like The Snowy Day not Xmas specific, but winter , as well as the Olive and Olivia books mentioned by beth above. What I love about this tradition is that it gives us a larger variety of books — otherwise the 3yo would be requesting the same thing every night.
But we all love it nonetheless. What a great idea! Literary advent will be one of them we start this year. We also have started the very easy tradition of the holiday amaryllis.
CNM — nice! I like the idea of starting my own traditions. I'm so glad you're here. This is where I share thoughts on liturgical living, faith, parenting, culture, and an extra dose of Jane Austen.

I would love to have a collection of all his books for Lucia. The entire Tomie dePaola collection! I want it, too. Such a great message. They are both such cute little stories.
My boys still like listening to them. Would you mind commenting on that? I recognize a few from your list that we love. Our library has many great options, but is often missing older and more faith-minded titles.go site

Jaunten (Advent Mage Cycle, #1) by Honor Raconteur
Park Delafield has no problem with women, they seldom refuse him, no matter how much he treats them as objects. So he wants to change, from sad sybarite to parfit gentle knight, and for that he needs a parfit gentle maid. Chloe Lambert is ugly, she knows it, no getting away from that simple fact. She accepts her lot with a good grace, has come to terms with her fate, set up a kind of social life for herself and relies on her friends to get her through.
She has no problem with men.
