Our storybook Advent was the inspiration for beginning a picture book 365 project. The process is very similar to the 365 approach, with the exception that we do not use envelopes. Instead, we wrap holiday themed books and label them with number tags for the days of Advent. We reference the calendar then let our little one find the book with the number tag that matches the current date. Then one of the kids unwraps the book and we read it together as a family. As the number of wrapped books in the basket diminishes we count down until Christmas arrives. Please stay tuned for pictures & a comprehensive list of our favorite Christmas & holiday stories.
