So this year, I’ve decided to go modern with our new favorite Christmas story post. We are picking popular new-ish books.
First up, It’s Christmas, David! My kids ADORE David and so I should have expected that this book would be a hit. In a similar vein as the other David books, David is always in trouble. He breaks a window, goes running naked down the street, snitches cookies and even writes his name in the snow. Ahem. While some might find these visual jokes a bit crude, I’m sure any boy or daddy would find them hysterical. And my little girls do, too. It’s my 2 year old’s favorite so far.
The next book that my daughters loved this year was Fancy Nancy: Splendiferous Christmas. My oldest daughter (almost 5) has discovered that she LOVES Fancy Nancy. And amazingly enough, I really like them, too! This particular Fancy Nancy book is written and illustrated by the originals and takes place on Christmas Eve. It goes through all the things Nancy & her sister do while they are waiting for their grandfather to arrive so they can decorate the tree. Minor disaster strikes and they figure out a way to get around it. As always, it is accompanied by a sprinkling of french, flair and fancy words . Another new favorite.
The other one is Jingle Bugs. My kids LOVE the Bug books. In fact, I find them on clearance quite frequently and buy them all when I see them. It has a removable ornament and all your typical Bug pop-up book treats. At the end is a Christmas Tree that plays the whole Jingle Bells song. While these aren’t the sturdiest books for a 2 year old (understatement of the year), my kids LOVE them and I don’t mind if one occasionally gets destroyed; I buy them whenever I find them and they ARE cute.
So these were three of our new favorites this year.
What good books have you picked up for this Christmas?
