This year for Christmas I gave my kids a whole series of Advent books. I had thought about doing it previously and had never got myself organised so this year I started early and ordered some of the books on Fishpond to get me started. I collected the rest bit by bit until I had 24 to wrap and number. The kids then opened one a day from December 1st through to Christmas Eve.
Most of the books were picture books which I figured they would grow out of soon. Then there was a short chapter book and one quite long book by JRR Tolkien. The whole collection was a huge hit!
Here are all the books, each one linking back to Amazon where you can read more information.
