Picture Book Advent Calendar.

This week I wrapped up 24 special books... In addition to our event based advent calendar, we are doing a picture book advent this year and I am a LITTLE excited! I have a huge love for children's literature and illustrations. Basically, my wishlist had grown so huge this year that I decided to purchase all of the books I've been wanting to add to our library, but wait until December to give them to my kids. This is not an inexpensive advent idea, but these books will count as a big part of their gifts from us this year. They have really taken a shine to reading recently and I could not be happier about it.

I chose books that are old, and some that are new. Some I've read before, but others I will be excited to read for the first time when we open them. In case you're looking for book ideas for Christmas, here's a small sampling of the books we chose...

The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt
This Moose Belongs to Me by Oliver Jeffers
Friends by Eric Carle
God Gave Us You by Lisa Tawn Bergren
The Bear's Song by Benjamin Chaud
Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett
Matthew's Dream by Leo Lionni
People by Blexbolex
Wherever You Are, My Love Will Find You by Nancy Tillman

I can't wait to see their faces when they find out what's inside each one! Do you have any special plans up your sleeve for December?
