This year is Little Mr’s second ever Christmas and as we started a few new Christmas traditions last year, we wanted to add to that this year. I saw the idea of a Christmas Book Advent when Little Mr was a baby and stored it away for when he was old enough and had an interest in books. To my delight, Little Mr is a right little bookworm. He loves books. We have read to him from a very early age and a bedtime story is an essential part of our bedtime routine so we thought a Christmas Book Advent would be ideal for him.
What is a Christmas Book Advent?
A Christmas Book Advent is a countdown from 1st December to 24th December in books. I have wrapped 24 new books up for Little Mr to open, look at, read and enjoy. There’s a mix of books in the advent for him to enjoy. Some books featuring his favourite characters such as Peppa Pig and Mr Men. There’s books featuring Penguins and Polar Bears, a couple of tradition Christmas stories as well as some fabulous new books that we have been gifted by Campbell books. Watch out for our book reviews in early December.

I really hope Little Mr loves his Christmas Book Advent. I don’t think we’re spoiling him with books. In my view, books are there to learn from and I really want to encourage him to read a variety of different books as both I and his Daddy did when we were growing up.
How much did it cost?
The Christmas Book Advent didn’t cost me much money at all. I bought over 30 new books from various bookshops and because I shopped around, the books cost me less than £1 each. I’ve got some books left over that I’ll introduce over the next year to continue his learning and broaden his knowledge and enjoyment of books.
Have you done a Christmas Book Advent before? These books will last much longer than a nasty cheap chocolate advent calendar and is a lot more fun!
