What We're Reading This Christmas

I realized last week as I posted My November Books that I rarely remember to write up a post filled with the books the boys are reading.  I know they are often included in my weekly wrap- ups but decided I wanted to start posting once a month the books they're reading (or in this case ones we're reading together).

In December we often cut way back on our schooling to make lots of time for holiday crafts, baking, books and movies.  We keep going with our math, spelling, and Language arts work but turn to reading wonderful picture and chapter books about Christmas, Santa, holiday traditions, and all things festive.

On this our 5th year of homeschooling it's getting harder and harder to find holiday books that we've never read before.  Of course we'll re-read some favorites like The Polar Express but mostly we like to try and find new books.

I was thrilled to find 20 new Christmas Books for us to enjoy together this year:

1. Shooting at The Stars: The Christmas Truce of 1914

2.  Christmas in the Country

3. The 12 Days of Christmas In New England

4. An Ellis Island Christmas

5. Merry Christmas Mom and Dad

6.  Fly Guy's Ninja Christmas

7. The Legend of Holly Claus

8.  The 12 Days of Christmas

9. Silver Packages: An Appalachian Christmas Story

10. The Reindeer Wish

11. Night Tree

12. The Trees of the Dancing Goats

13. Christmas in the Big Woods

14. Why Christmas Trees Aren't Perfect

15.  The Light of Christmas

16.  The Christmas Candle

17. How to Catch an Elf

18. Stowaway in a Sleigh

19.  Merry Christmas Amelia Bedelia

20.  The Christmas Boot
