What an exciting time of year! One of my favorite parts about the season is sharing favorite holiday books with kids.
Here's a simple idea that makes it even more fun . . .
Collect your favorite holiday books and wrap them up. I like to use recycled wrapping paper or place them in reusable gift bags.
When it's time for a read aloud, let a child pick a "present" to open.
To add a little more fun, have the books magically appear and act surprised when you and the kids find them.
If I especially want to read a certain book, I will have it "appear" on the easel - fully wrapped and ready to open and read.
I hope your kids enjoy this simple idea if you decide to give it a try. Happy Holidays!
