It's pretty obvious by now, I love collecting children's books. Aside from trying to finish my Christmas Countdown collection, right now we usually just add a book or two at holiday time. We have three Halloween books, a Valentine's, a St. Patrick's, and birthday book. I think books, along with crafts, are the best way to get children excited about holidays whether meaningful and religious or of the Hallmark variety. Children love a reason to celebrate and there isn't a better way to explain the holiday's meaning than a well written book.
We own Happy Valentine's Day, Mouse (amongst a handful of Mouse books, and love them all) I'm adding The Invisible String this year, of course with some candy hearts, heart shaped stickers, and red and pink finger paints.
Do you buy or borrow holiday themed books for your children? What's your favorite way to get them excited about celebrating.... candy?!
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! I'm off to muster up some feigned excitement for the Super Bowl, since I give squat about either team. I'll probably spend more time prepping for Valentine's with Ashlynn.
