Advent: Day 1

We started our countdown today. I've been collecting books in French and English for the last few months and have finally amassed 24! The last one arrived in the mail just yesterday. Whew! My son recently turned 4 and I am hoping he will love books as much as I did growing up. This idea adds a bit of magic to it all and I'm sure it will be a big success. Also, since he is still learning his numbers, I've placed the books out of order and he has to match the number on the calendar to the one on the books.

I've seen so many amazing advent calenders this week that I am definitely not lacking inspiration for next year. Check out this one I spotted over at Bloesem Kids.


  1. I love that your giving your son books during advent and not just chocolates. 24 books! What a lucky little boy :-)

  2. Thanks for the comment. So far both kids are really enjoying it. We will definitely be repeating this next year.
