Countdown to Christmas...with books!

My kids love books
and my kids love opening presents
so they were so excited when I told them about this years
Countdown to Christmas.

We gathered up 25 Christmas books (from around our house and from the library),
then wrapped them,
and stuck them in a basket under the tree.
Each night the kids get to pick one book to unwrap and read together before bed.

Tonight was night one and they loved it!

I love this time of year!

Such a cute idea! I've been thinking about something similar to do with my little sister (age: 8). I want to help her expand her vocabulary and hopefully over our Christmas break we can pick up a good chapter book for to read together.
