Ever since I can remember my mom has been purchasing Christmas books. These special books make an appearance only once a year for approximately a month and then are packed away until the next year. Over the years my brother and I had our favorites but I have to say that I have one “old” favorite and one “new” favorite.
The photo below shows a few of our collected books. The book on the top of the stack is my “old” favorite. “Claude the Dog: A Christmas Story”.
In this simple story Claude receives a few presents from his owners/family. After receiving the gifts, Claudes friend Bummer comes over. Bummer doesn’t have a family or a home. Claude ends up giving his presents to Bummer. When Bummer is concerned that Claude doesn’t have any presents remaining Claude simply states that his best present is his home & family.
The message is simple and I adore this book. I thought it was no longer available but it can be purchased on Amazon!
My “new” favorite is called “Snowmen At Night”. It is a fun story about the adventures of what snowmen do at night…snowball fights, sledding, and much more. This book can be found on Amazon or at a local bookstore!
More easy decor ideas & simple traditions tomorrow!
