December Book Club – Celebrations

So, what to do for December for the Book Club? I know – we are already over a week into December. The theme is celebrations and I have tried to focus that down and bit and have been completely unsuccessful. So you know what? I’m going to share a number of books that we read this month. For years, we have wrapped 24 children’s books about the holidays and unwrapped one each night. I’ll share those with you at the end of the month or you can follow along day-by-day on the Instagram or Facebook page. I post those (almost) daily.

For myself, I am reading a number of holiday short stories and books that I have downloaded to my Kindle. Again, I did this years ago but have never ready them. So I am doing that this year. I started Dicken’s A Christmas Carol last night. Previous to that I had looked up some of the short stories like The Gift of the Magi, The Birds’ Christmas Carol, and The Christmas Cake. I will be reading others. Most of these are free to download since they are in the public domain. An excellent way to do some enjoyable holiday readying.

The other thing I am doing this month is reading with my youngest. We are going to work hard on The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe next week as part of our holiday studies. Something different. And of course, we will include some baking of some sort.

What are you reading and doing this month for celebrations?

Lori, At Home.

    so what’s your opinion on the Christmas carol? It has never been my thing. The book I tried and said Nope to, and I’ve seen a number of renditions in movie/video form. but it’s like meh.

      The Dicken’s book? I am enjoying it. It isn’t a super fascinating story but maybe because I have seen so many video formats that I am enjoying the original. I have never seen a live action one but love all the cartoons. 🙂

    I am reading The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe to my kids for the first time. I may have to find some Turkish Delight for them to try!
