Christmas Book Giveaway with Abrams Appleseed!

 I know I've said it a bunch here on the blog but I love giving and receiving books for gifts. Books open the world and take you to new places. They help you to learn and grow. We spend a lot of time reading in December - in fact during break that is the only school we do. Reading helps kids become better writers, too! Did you know that? Abrams Appleseed sent us three new holiday books to add to our collection and share with you! Be sure to enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post too!

 Folding out car by car, this accordion-style book takes readers on a tour of Santa’s Christmas train. Each car has lots to see—elves making toys, penguins playing, reindeer preparing for the big day—as Santa searches for his missing boot. With a running landscape dotted with objects for children to find and count on the back of the book, All Aboard! The Christmas Train is a fun, interactive ride from beginning to end.

Our Thoughts:  This book is fun and interactive! Lifting the flaps and folding the pages really make this book enjoyable. The way you can spread this book out on the floor makes it very unique and it was a big hit with my 3 year old son.

 The mice at the North Pole are getting ready to deck the halls with all the essentials. They’ve got ornaments and twinkle lights, candy canes and popcorn garlands. One by one, the mice unpack all the merriest decorations, but soon the items become a bit unexpected. Hot cocoa? Fuzzy dice? A map? In a festive twist, it’s revealed that it’s not a tree the mice are decorating, but Santa’s sleigh, all decked out for Christmas Eve!

Our Thoughts: This book has all the buzz words kids hear during the holiday season and it is perfect for introducing them to decorating. We really enjoyed the bright colors and the adorable mice.

There are many types of gifts. You can give a big, shiny, wrapped gift on Christmas morning, but you can also give the gifts of your help or your time. You can bake a cake for your parents or share what you learned in school with your little sister. You can help a friend unravel a knotty bracelet or smile at a stranger who looks sad. With a spirit of generosity, you’ll find you have many gifts to give to the world—and that giving can be even more fulfilling than receiving. Featuring a die-cut cover and interior flaps throughout, My Little Gifts celebrates the gift of giving.
The Growing Hearts series celebrates the milestones of a toddler’s emotional development, from conquering fears and expressing feelings to welcoming a new sibling.

 Our Thoughts: This book was a sweet as can be. The story shares about different kinds of gifts but I'm most taken by the kind way the narrator tells. The presents have flaps you can open and the illustrations are stunning.
