Once Thanksgiving is over, our preparations for Christmas begin. That night, Christmas songs blast from the Echo and we slowly pull out decorations and lights.
One Christmas tradition we cling to is our December Book Basket. Each year we fill it with old standbys and new favorites. Since December is our month of a home and homeschool that is more relaxed and connected, we slow down and cuddle more, we gather together under blankets with hot cocoa and peppermint sticks, we read and read and read some more.
Below you find the books that keep us coming back and some that will be new to us this year. A simple tradition that lets us slow down and come together to share stories. These also make awesome gifts to give.
