Book a Day December: Post 3

I have recently been made aware of a wonderful December tradition for families and that is giving your children a book a day leading up to Christmas, starting on December 1st.  Maybe I have been living under a rock, but this is the first I’ve heard of this tradition.  As many of you know, we are HUGE book lovers here at Mom-Spot and so, in the tradition of giving books every day in December, we are going to recommend books every day in December.

Our lists each day will not have a theme or be for the same age group – instead, they will be all over the board so that we cover babies to college students, all genres and levels of reading.  That being said, a theme or two might just work it’s way into our list or there might be multiple books by the same author in a given list.
