Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge: Wrap-Up


I almost forgot to write a wrap-up for the Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge! I had a lot of fun with this one. I had signed up to read just one holiday book, and that's all I managed to do. But I also signed up to read holiday books with my kids, and we managed to read a lot!

For the one adult book, I read Jacob T. Marley by R. William Bennett. I loved it! It was such a wonderful story, written as a sort of companion to the classic tale, A Christmas Carol. You can read my review here.

As far as the books I read with my kids goes, here's the full list!

Can You See What I See? Night Before Christmas
My Little Pony: Rose Blossom's First Christmas
The Polar Express
Twas the Night Before Christmas
The Elf on the Shelf (followed by a visit from our elf, Jolly)
The Christmas Magic
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Radio City Christmas Spectacular Pop-Up Book (after seeing the local performance)
Backyardigans Jingle Bell Christmas
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Minerva Louise on Christmas Eve
A Blue's Clues Chanukah
Henry and Mudge and a Very Merry Christmas
Four Friends at Christmas
The Golden Christmas Tree

You can see my short reviews of some of these books here and here.

I had a lot of fun with this challenge and look forward to participating again next year!
