Books play a HUGE role in our homeschool !!
The holidays are a great time for books,
I often read during our lesson time in place of something
more “academic” & always later on in the afternoon
by the woodstove.
We have so many festive books
that I’ve started sorting them into themes –
here are some of our animal books…
This book was a complete surprise for me ( I’m a confirmed Polar Bear lover) – the stunning scenery, the story line (an inquiring little girl has an amazing adventure) & the clothing (while wearing adorable alpine outfits).
I could read it every day of the season! It’s also a great favourite of my wild, little girl, who just happens to have blonde braids, too!
See what I mean ?!?
Here are 4 more books from our Holiday Reading collection. I always like to see what the illustrations are like in books as they can really bring the story to life for my 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.

You may be wondering just HOW we have so many books – well, I’ve been collecting for quite a while (some are from my own childhood).
each year, each child receives 2 holiday books under the tree, one from my husband & I & the other from Santa. It’s become a tradition that I hope to continue for some time to come!
Do let me know if you have any others you think would fit well into our collection.
