This year, the advent calendar we gave our kids was a new Christmas book under the tree every morning. We read the book a few times a day, and then put it away so there would be a new book the next day. It’s been a lot of fun, but I’m especially looking forward to reading The Night Before Christmas on Christmas eve.
Sometimes, though, we found that some of the Christmas books were a little too long for the time-frame we had in which to read them. If one of the children was not interested in reading a story before bed, we would pick a shorter book so we would definitely have time to read it before the tears started. That’s where this handy infographic comes in! I’ve teamed up with Personal Creations, who made this awesome visual. Just select which Christmas book you want to read, and it tells you exactly how long it will take in minutes to read. So if you’ve got younger kids, like I do, who might not be able to sit through an entire lengthy book, you can pick a shorter one from the list!
Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!
