I want to tell you about a FABULOUS Advent Calendar/book. It’s called The Story of Christmas Advent Calendar By Mary Packard, Illustrated by Carolyn Croll.
It consists of a large board triptych (three part panel). It opens like double doors and stands on a table or a shelf. Inside there are 24 mini-books, each telling a little bit of the story of Christmas. You take out a book each day and read it. Then the mini-book can hang on a Christmas tree.
This is a lovely book for young children, but you will find that older children, and even teens will love the fun of the tiny books and the continuing story. In fact, I didn’t discover this book until my youngest child was already in her teens. The calendar very quickly established itself as a treasure in our family to pull out year after year. I just wish I had found it earlier. The Story of Christmas Advent Calendar
