Do you have a favorite Christmas or holiday book from your childhood? I have many! I've been collecting children's Christmas picture books forever and have amassed quite a collection that I've now passed on to my son. Each year we pull out the books from a big box in storage to re-read favorites as well as one or two new ones that I add. This year I am borrowing an idea from Hillary of My Scraps. I wrapped 24 of our holiday books, one for each night leading up to Christmas. I told my son that he gets to unwrap one book a night to read, but we can always re-read any of the opened ones throughout the month.
I purchased two rolls of wrapping paper at the dollar store and spent an evening wrapping up all the books. I showed my son the stack tonight and explained the process. He was very excited about getting to unwrap a book each day, even though they are not new books. Tonight he happened to pick out one of my favorites, illustrated by a favorite artist/illustrator of mine, Mary Engelbriet.
My son's only request was that we re-read this one on Christmas Eve. Not a problem!
