To enjoy our favorite Christmas books slowly, I would give one (or more) books to the children each day. Some people wrap the books, but I have a decorative box with a bow that I place books in for the children to open. Until now.
Our family's focus is on the birth of Christ. We read from the Bible and use our Little People nativity set. We have a homemade Jesse Tree. Many of our Christmas books discuss the birth of Jesus (some more accurately than others) and some have Santa in them or just cute mice.
Compare this year's basket to the one we used a few years ago when I first shared about reading a Christmas book daily in December.
