12 Days Of Christmas Blogging Challenge Day #8 - Book Advent Calendar - The Next Six Books ♥

It's day #8 of the 12 Days Of Christmas Blogging Challenge and today's topic is books, an easy one for me as I've been doing the book advent calender with Tyler Lee and have been needing to update you all on the next six books we've read. We are now onto the last week of the book advent calendar, I cannot believe it's gone so fast! We've had lots of great stories these past few weeks and we've been reading other Christmas books during this time too, not from the calendar, so it really has been reading month in our house - long may it continue! You can see the other twelve books we read here.

 Richard Scarry's Best Bedtime Stories Ever
Jacek wanted to get this for Tyler Lee as he read these books when he was a child. This is a collection of Richard Scarry’s best loved stories, gathered together in the perfect bedtime storybook. Jacek read this to our boy so I don't know what the stories are, all I know is he was laughing at the old words such as 'vagrant' in a train car. It really is the little things which amuse him! You can buy it here.

Another of Jacek's picks. He saw all these Disney books in a local toy store and had to pick them up as they were two for one on offer. This tells the story of Aladdin and has screenshots from the film as illustrations. You can buy it here.

Santa Is Coming To Cork
This is such a lovely book which follows the story of Santa's visit to Cork and all the places he visits along the way. It was great seeing all the illustrations of famous places throughout County Cork, including the name and cathedral in our home town.

Enid Blyton's Bedtime Collection For Children
This is such a lovely collection of four books but the wonderful Enid Blyton. The book we've read before has been full of magical stories about fairies and toy boats who talk and we loved the imagination of it all. I can't wait to read the rest to my boy. You can buy it here.

This is a Disney film I've never seen so it was great to read the story to my boy before we both watch it together someday. This book follows the story of the film and the illustrations are screenshots from the film too. You can buy it here.

My Treasury Of Christmas Carols & Stories
This is a lovely collection of traditional Christmas stories and carols all with wonderful illustrations. This is one to read through every year for sure. You can buy it here.

We are almost halfway through our final week of the book advent calendar and I shall be sharing the final six books after Christmas.
