Have you heard of the tradition 25 Days of Christmas books? It's a fun way to count down to Christmas (or any Dec. holiday your family celebrates) with your family throughout the month of December. You simply purchase 25 holiday themed books and wrap them individually. Then starting December 1st, your child opens a new book each day. It not only gets kids excited about the holidays, but also about reading!
If you're looking for some book ideas for holiday gift giving, you will want to check out the latest children's book from author Deb A Kalmbach: Kosmo's Christmas Delivery.
About the Author:
Deb Kalmbach considers herself an "expert" in not-so-perfect marriages. She's passionate about helping other women take one step forward, then another to find healing and wholeness in their lives. Real hope for real life is what Deb strives to communicate to her readers.
Deb and her husband Randy can see the half-century milestone (a miracle!) for their marriage on the horizon. They live in a tiny town in rural Washington state with Kosmo, their Jack Russell Terrier, who has inspired a new children's book series.
This is a great read-aloud with young children. It is short enough to keep their attention and has appealing and whimsical illustrations. Both my two-year-old and my five-year-old love animal stories, and the cute terrier and his funny antics was definitely a hit with them.
My oldest daughter could really relate to the theme of jealousy when a new family member arrives. She felt the same way when we brought her baby sister home for the first time. This opened up a great discussion about sibling rivalry and how both girls can share their feelings when they are jealous. We also talked about how each family member is equally important and special, even though they have to share mom and dad's attention.
I highly recommend this book for children, especially for those that are expecting a new sibling in the family.
Where to Purchase:
Kosmo's Christmas Delivery is available in paperback for $12.60 on Amazon.
