Wee Reads

One of my favorite Holiday traditions is wrapping Christmas books for my kids. I use the same 12 books each year and re-wrap them for the next.  They love opening and reading a book each night until Christmas arrives, though I will admit it can get them into the habit of unwrapping any present they see (and I speak from experience). This will be our second year and it feels kind of special to create traditions that are original to our little family (though not original in general).  If you like the idea, but not all the money involved in buying 12 cute christmas books, do what I did and wait for the after season sales to pick them up.

I have done the book thing. You can also check out books from the library! We've done that instead of outright buying a bunch of new books. :) You get to keep them for several weeks so it is plenty of time to open and read and take back.

I just LOVE that Christmas tree picture made out of books! That would be awesome in a library or school. Or my house. :)

Love this idea, Annie! I'm currently making a Christmas quilt (well, it's part of a virtual quilting bee so I have some help) and I'm already dreaming up the times when my kids run to grab the quilt and a Christmas book for a holiday snuggle. But to add a special holiday unwrapping--so fun.
