Christmas Book Advent Books 1-25

I am a PINTEREST addict! There I said it! Honestly a lot of great ideas are shared on Pinterest and I am always inspired when I visit the site :) So one of MANY pins I made was a Book Advent! Seriously how great of an idea! I sell Usborne Children's books and although not all 25 books are Usborne books we will be reading I am still very excited to start this tradition with my family!
During the month of November I tracked down 25 Christmas books (or winter books) Some have excellent deep stories, some are just fun traditional stories and some are just fun! 
My kids LOVE books! So I collected books from our own stash, some borrowed from my mom and the rest I purchased :)
So I used the NEW Usborne Christmas Sticky labels (and sharpies) to label all the books by number in order we will be reading them... I really like the Random idea of wrapping them up but I really would like to read Book #1 first and a nativity book last so I decided to number them :) My little Adalie helped! and then we put the books. 
So here we are! 
Book 1: The Sparkle Box

Can I just say... this is my new favorite book! 
We are very excited to read this one with the kids! 
It is a wonderful story!!
I HIGHLY recommend this story!!
