In our house, every year we get out our beautiful advent calender book. It is a stunning collection of tiny stories and poem books held in a beautiful advent calender book.
Inside are 25 little books all with a different story, tradition or poem about Christmas, The stopry of the poinsettia, Good King Wenseslas, snippets from Childrens classics like little women. It's a beautiful and amazing way to spend in the build up to Christmas. When the children are little you can read to them and as they get older, they can read with you and finally to you.
I really love the fact that unlike many advent calenders, the set also includes a special book for Christmas day with the nativity story. It's a great culmination to the calender.
The bnooks can all be taken out and hung on the tree with the little satin tags that are attached to each book.
