Tomorrow is the first day of December, and I'm excited because that means Christmas is coming! I'm also excited because we've decided to put together a little countdown here on the blog. For the next 25 days, we'll be featuring one Christmas-themed book each day. Most of these will be picture books, but there will be some longer ones thrown in there too. Some will be favorites that we've loved for years, and others will be new to us, but all can provide inspiration for celebrating the Christmas season.

So, stay tuned! As the countdown progresses, I'll include each title on this page so that when it's done, the 25 days will be all collected here for reference.
