Creating a Book Advent Calendar – 24 Children’s Books

A book advent is a great alternative. I am going to be wrapping up 24 books for my little book worm to open one each day. Not all of them have to be Christmas themed, its totally up to. I have a mix of Christmas and my favourite children’s books, with the plan being for the Christmas ones to come at the end leading up to the big day.

You don’t even have to buy new books. You can use ones that you already have. The idea is that you then share that days book with your child, whether it be at the beginning of the day or as part of the bed time routine.

If you are buying new books they become an investment that you can look at time and again with your children. Places to check out our the Book People and The Works. Maybe you have a little book shop local to you. We have a £1 book shop in Harpenden that always has great titles.
