31 days - The Book Tradition

Almost every year since we got married I have bought a new children's Christmas book to add to my collection. I love children's books. And I look forward to this purchase so much.

To prepare for this purchase, I am going pull out my Christmas book collection to remember what I have and love. Then I will allow myself the luxury of looking at lists of books online, spending extra time in book stores sitting on the floor appreciating words and art.

If I had one tradition that I hope that my kids will carry into their lives as they grow up, this would be it. Reading and loving lovely Christmas books.

This purchase can be decided anytime before December 15.

Brent introduced me to one of his childhood favorites The Twenty-four days before Christmas by Madeline L'Engle. It's great. Last year we discovered Christmas Day in the Morning by Pearl S. Buck, which is a beautiful picture book with a wonderful story of a boy who wakes up early on Christmas morning to do his father's farm chores.
