My kids love to read. Getting books taken away is a punishment around here. And if you are really in trouble, you don't get to go to the library on library day. *Que scary music* Dun, dun, dun.
When I saw this post with Halloween books a while back, I knew we needed to expand on the idea. My mom had already given us a crate of Christmas books the year before. She spent the whole year collecting them from thrift stores and garage sales. My kids thought it ws one of the best gifts ever! Now my oldest daughter's favorite part of getting out each holiday's decor is the basket of books that comes with it.
Almost all my books are from the thrift store or library sale. I just buy them whenever I see them. I have them for most of the big holidays. Some are easier to find than others, but it's still a lot of fun!
