Free Books for Christmas!

Some families make paper chains to count down the days to Christmas. This year I decided to buy 24 books for my girls to open. My oldest is in kindergarten and reading every day. She's even teaching her three year-old sister to read. Each day (starting December 1) they alternate who gets to open a book that we can all read together. It's been so much fun and I know they will remember the experience.

Since I can't buy books for all of you, I thought I would share this link to 25 free ebooks for Christmas: http://www.mediabistro.com/galleycat/25-free-ebooks-for-christmas_b62275  and here are some more freebies and a charity event with cool games and prizes to win: Go here for details.

I hope you enjoy this variety of fun reads. Merry Christmas everyone!

What holiday traditions or books mean the most to you?

What a fantastic way to count down the holidays! I wish I'd thought of that when my kidddos were little. And I love buying books. To me, they're an investment so it never feels frivolous. Lucky kids! Happy holidays to you.

Happy Christmas to you and your family!
