I *thought* about spending my evening taking down Christmas decorations. But I decided the wiser course of action was sitting and reading a Christmas book by the tree instead. 😉🎄 #12booksofChristmas

Disney It's a Small World Christmas Around the World | Disney Book Group, Calliope Glass

Just finished the Christmas edition of the toddler story time at church! ???

I sometimes give books that have "Disney" in the title a little side-eye, but this one is adorable! Shows kids all over the world practicing their Christmas traditions.

The ornaments on our tree are primarily music-related. We have lots of drums because hubby is a drummer, and, after I started teaching handbells, bell ornaments started showing up, too. Here's my silver bell for #12booksofChristmas.

Louise Love it! ❤👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼🌟❤ 3y
Lizpixie I have the same bells on my tree!🛎 3y

The Jolly Christmas Postman | Janet Ahlberg, Allan Ahlberg

This book is so enjoyable and interactive! The postman delivers Christmas letters from the Big Bad Wolf to Little Red Riding Hood, to and from the Gingerbread Man and Santa Claus and the 3 Little Pigs and more. You can actually open and read each "letter" and there is even a book within the book! I loved it as a kid, and my girls love it now.

Super fun historical fiction featuring Lord Turnip Fitzhugh (who was NOT nicknamed for his mental acuity). 😉

moranadatter Turnip's a sweetheart. 3y
raelaschoenherr I love this one! I knew him from the series and didn't think I'd enjoy a full book about him. I was happy to be proven very wrong! Time for a re-read this Christmas! 3y

The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous! And it teaches some great history (A is for Augustus, Emperor of Rome). #12BooksofChristmas

A sweet (ha! couldn't resist the pun) Christmas story about Rosie's burgeoning relationships with her new boyfriend and fellow villagers. #12booksofChristmas
