In the Book Basket: Wintertime Books

My favorite part of Christmas is not the gifts (even though they're nice!) or even the food (but it tastes so good!), it's spending time with family. And now that I have my own kids, we are carving out our own traditions. And one tradition we have is gathering up all the Christmas books and each night we choose a few to read together. We pile onto the couch, under quilts and blankets... and I revel in those quiet moments together.

In our book basket this year, we've got some oldies and some goodies.

Here's a few of our favorites:

The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats
The Mitten by Jan Brett

The Velveteen Rabbit By Margery Williams

Madeline's Christmas by Ludwig Bemelmans

The Jacket I Wear in the Snow by Shirley Neitzel

What are some of your favorites? Maybe we could add them to the basket for next year!

I love the mitten. We still have a single mitten we keep with out book. My chickens are older, but this weekend, we'll forage in the garage to bring out out own basket of Christmas books. By far and away, the Polar Express is our bestest favorite. Long before there was the movie. We must have read it every night for a year after it came into our life for Christmas.
