Welcome to the Advent Story event I am having here on Eastern Sunset Reads this Christmas season.
Every family has their own personal Holiday traditions, and many of them include those advent calendars that have the little chocolates or toys behind each door as you count to Christmas Day. Well in my family we had a Advent Candle instead. Each night we would light the candle and as it burned that day away we would read a special Christmas story or poem. So I decided to bring that tradition to all of you.
Most of the books will be Children's books as I share this tradition with Munchkin for the first time, but I will also have some After Dark specials and maybe a few fiction, romance and young adult books too as time allows. I will also feature a favorite Christmas song each day. So please join me and share some of your favorite traditions, songs and stories this holiday season!
Synopsis: "The holidays are filled with joyful noise. But Christmas is sometimes wrapped in quiet: “Searching for presents quiet,” “Getting caught quiet,” and “Hoping for a snow day quiet.” Irresistibly cute, soft colored pencil illustrations of bunnies, bears, and more paint a magical holiday picture indeed."
My Review: Another adorable Christmas book for the little ones! I love the little woodland animals and their holiday preparations. I enjoyed the little touches of humor throughout the book, particularly 'blown fuse quiet' hehe. I also like that it is filled with quiet activities for little munchkins, hopefully this story will help teach my little one to be somewhat calm and quiet during the season because I clearly recall driving my own mom insane!
My Rating: I give this one a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag! Filled with beautiful illustrations, simple reading for the short attention spans and quiet things all can enjoy during the season.
