I wanted to do something awesome for the little guy for Advent this year, so I decided to put together a children’s book Advent calendar. I thought it’d be a fun way to celebrate the season and encourage a love of books at the same time.

The industrial-style wire basket was of course borrowed from the studio. I wrapped some books in kraft paper and others in blue and added either twine or chipboard numbers to a few of them as well.
I put together a list of books that I wanted to include. Some packages even include a few. The overwhelming majority of these are not Christmas books. They’re books that I’ve been wanting to add to the little guy’s library and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so.
Here’s a list of what’s in each of the 25 packages that are part of our Advent calendar this year.
I really wanted to put together a nice mix of books that he’d enjoy now and ones that would grow with him as well as best-selling fiction and of course reference books too.
I was practically bursting at the seams as I wrapped each one of these awesome books last night and I can’t wait to start reading them with the little guy.
You definitely don’t have to go out and buy 25-30 books at one time to put together something like this. I’ve been grabbing a few at a time all year.
When I placed orders on Amazon, I added a book or two. If we went to the bookstore and I found something I wanted on sale, I bought it. And when we got Scholastic each month, I picked a few extra to save just for this.
Putting together our children’s book Advent calendar has been an ongoing project for months now and I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out.
