Christmas Reading (Part 2) – A Festive Book List from Handwork Homeschool

Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree - Handwork HomeschoolDuring the holiday season,
I like to try to match what we’re reading to what we’re doing.
This week we went on our annual
pilgrimage to find TWO perfect trees
& our first book this week
was of course…

Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree!

Mr Willowby's Christmas Tree - Handwork Homeschool

This book is one of those books that appeals to everybody in our family.  A classic, it was first published in 1963…..

My youngest loves the tiny mouse tree & the maid in her frilly uniform trimming her tree with baubles & beads.  My son loves the truck that arrives carrying the gigantic tree marked “Special Delivery”.  I love Mr. Willowby’s house with its grand entrance & oval central window because it reminds me of our’s.  The rhyming text makes it fun to read, too.

Here are the next 14 of our Holiday Reading collection – watch for the last 8 or so any day now!   I always like to see what the illustrations are like in books as they can bring the story to life for kids, especially those who can’t read just yet… So, I’ve included a few pages for you to see if these stories might suit your family. Click on any image to enlarge it.

Happy Christmas-time!

One Response to Christmas Reading (Part 2) – A Festive Book List from Handwork Homeschool

  1. Maureen Richard says:

    Thank you for this wonderful list Elizabeth! I especially appreciate the introduction of Brambly Hedge last season and now for the winter. I had never read those stories before. The 12 days of Christmas looks like a wonderful version -who is the author? And, we just got Little Fairy’s Christmas – we love that author as well!
    Thanks again and happy holidays!
