It’s been a whole year in the planning – after I borrowed the idea of someone else – but Boo’s Book Advent Calendar is finally complete and wrapped! It has been so much fun to do and I will definitely be doing it again next year.

After all of my hard work I thought I would share my creation!

I am not sure I have the right mix of Christmas vs other books in the Book Advent Calendar, some days I think there is too many Christmas Books and other days not enough!

I have decided to label the books up – so that I am picked which Boo opens on which days so that I can get most of the Christmas ones in early and a special one on her birthday which is on the 13th December.

The Christmassy Books are;

I have included a couple of my favourite books from childhood like Five Minutes Peace and The Velveteen Rabbit.  And some new ones I had never heard of before like Love Monster.

I am sure that Boo is going to love her Book Advent Calendar (she better do – it took me ages to wrap!!)
