There are so many really great Holiday Book lists out there this time of year. I don't have any revelations to add, necessarily, but I did want to record what holiday and seasonal books Silas is enjoying right now. Most of them I picked up at Goodwill when I stumbled upon the book stash of, what I assume to be, a former teacher who was cleaning out her closets. There were some real finds in there and I bought almost 50 books in that one trip; quite a haul even for me!
Counting to Christmas by Nancy Tafuri: Very simple text telling what a little girl does on each day of Advent. The pictures are huge, bold, and bright.
A Winter Day by Douglas Florian: Simple, rhyming words about winter. Large pictures that have a very child-like quality to them.
Winter by Gerda Muller: The beautifully illustrated seasonal classic.
Amy Loves the Snow by Julia Hoban: A little girl and her dad spend time playing outside.
Hello Snow! by Wendy Cheyette Lewison: Fun rhymes that Silas likes to dance to.
The Just-Right Christmas Tree by Jane Gerver: This is one of only 3 winter/holiday board books that we have that Silas can "read" by himself. Very sturdy pages and a sweet Goldilocks-type story.
As for knitting...still working on the baby blanket (expect to hear this refrain for awhile...sorry!).
Linking up with Ginny over at Small Things.
