WWRW: Pre-Christmas Edition

I'm coming in late and kind of breaking the rules (forgive me Jessica, I'll save you a scoop of Apple Cranberry Crisp) to share some of our favorite Advent/Christmas books. I'll have more next week, I promise. It's been a long day of cooking and cleaning so I'm going to type this up quick like {with affiliate links, but you probably already knew that…}:

The Professor: A Christmas Carol  by Charles Dickens~ Specifically this one illustrated by talented P.J. Lynch

Sunshine: An Orange for Frankie by Patricia Polacco~ She likes the sappy ones.

Shortcake: Letters From Father Christmas by J.R.R. Tolkien ~ She has taken to drawing her own pictures including polar bears.

BigBoy: Angela and the Baby Jesus by Frank McCourt ~ 
It's a new favorite.

Cupcake: A Christmas Carol: A BabyLit Colors Primer ~ We turned on The Muppets Christmas Carol the other night and after hearing a "Bah-Humbug" and "Old Marley was as dead as a door nail," she piped up with "Hey, that's my book!"

Happy Thanksgiving!!!


  1. Love your pics, Charlotte! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Great book recommends, we just ordered several of those. I cannot wait to receive the Tolkien one! Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. We are getting the Tolkien one this Christmas. I am very excited about this!

  4. Hi Charlotte:
    My family LOVES Angela and the Baby Jesus!! I scored a copy of it years ago at a half price book store. Mine is an audio read by Frank McCourt and my kids would read/listen to it all year if I let them. If I had realized what a treasure it was I would have purchased every copy on the shelf to share as gifts (it was under $3).
    Blessings, Kelly F.

  5. I just bought ALL of these, thanks!

  6. Thanks! just ordered a few more to add to our collection :) I appreciate the recommendations!

  7. I know this post is really old, but I just wanted to let you know that your link for Jessica in the first line goes to a really terrible website. I hope you can remove it.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
