DAY 11



Books glorious books today we got together our Xmas books and the girls got top open a few more to add to their collection from now on bedtime stories will be a little festive. Books are regularly used in this house we either have downtime during the day or a few stories at night, I never get sick of buying or receiving them and it would be a great gift for Xmas by the way too if you stumped for ideas. I thought I'd share with you some new ones I've added to the girls collection. Some for illustration purposes some for the story and another because we are still addicted to frozen and snowmen are the closest thing to frozen. You can find them all on Amazon or a order from your local bookstore.

Oh by the way whilst I was looking for advent calendar ideas, I found a book advent which is basically opening a book for 24 days if your a lover this could be fun .... the different display ideas on Pinterest will win you over for sure 




Sneezy the Snowman

A snowman who finds it dreadfully cold keeps doing things that cause him to melt, while the children who rebuild him each time offer clothing to keep him warm






The Christmas Wish

With delightful illustrations by wildlife artist Michael Monroe and enchanting text from Colleen Monroe, the birds, deer and squirrel of this story help make their special friend's wish come true.
