One of our family’s favorite ways of getting into the spirit of Christmas is reading books on Christmas. This week, we’re off to the library to loan some Christmas-themed books to complement our upcoming Advent activities. I’m sharing a small selection of Holiday Titles which are available for loan in our National Library. What a delight! To locate the books on the shelves, just go to the Junior Fiction Books section, search under CALL NUMBER “English” + “First 3 Letters of Author’s Last Name”.

Thanks for the recommendations! Am starting to get a few titles for the boy. We are also intending to get one of the versions of 12 days of Christmas to explore the true meanings behind each number. 😉
