Picture Book Advent Calendar

For an Advent calendar this year, I used a cute idea from My Little Bookcase. I wrapped up 25 children's picture books about Christmas and Jesus' birthday. Each night, my little girls will open one and we'll all read it together. I love that!

A couple weeks ago, we hosted Betsy Bird from School Library Journal's A Fuse #8 Production at our Indiana SCBWI Member Luncheon. I'm the Regional Advisor for Indiana SCBWI, so I had the honor of getting to spend some extra time with Betsy before and after the event. She's a librarian, children's book reviewer, author, and a just an all-around nice person. On a walk along Zionsville's lovely streets, we came across a Little Free Library in front of someone's house. So adorable!

I'll be a guest blogger for post-PiBoIdMo on Dec 2 on Tara Lazar's blog where you can win a picture book critique from me. Be sure to watch for it!

My girls loved it last night! The youngest got to choose any book off the pile and unwrap it. It ended up being the perfect one explaining why we give gifts on Christmas. Such a sweet time reading in front of the Christmas tree!
