Advent Stories Day 9: Waitng for Christmas

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: "Look out of the window -- what do you see? You can play with the watery windows in this book, each with different Christmas shapes inside. You might just catch a glimpse of a special Christmas visitor and his reindeer through the window"

My Review: A good book for the countdown to Christmas. Hits on some favorite parts of the holiday season, the snow, the anticipation, and the decorating. The little water filled windows is a great idea, unfortunately my copy was used and the water seems to have leaked out or dried up and the floating confetti and glitter doesn't so much float any more.
My Rating: I give this one Two Paws and a Stump Wag. It is short for little attention spans and the images are bold, and the water filled windows would be great if mine hadn't leaked or dried.
