Book Advent Calendar - The Next Six Books ♥

It's been another six days of my boy's book advent calendar and we've had some lovely story times. You can read about our previous six books in the advent calendar here. I'm so glad I put this together for my boy, it's been so much fun seeing him unwrap each book and reading to him each night at bedtime.

101 Dalmatians
This book gives the story of the film and the illustrations are screenshots from it too. This was my favourite Disney movie as a child so I loved reading this to my boy. You can buy it here
Tyler Lee and Santa's Irish Adventure
This is a lovely personalised book which sees my boy go with Finbar the elf to try and find missing Santa on Christmas Eve so that he's in time to deliver all the presents to the boys and girls in Ireland. It features a lot of different Irish landmarks and is personalised to my boy and our hometown. You can get your own here.

The Lion King
Another Disney story for my boy. This book also follows the story of the film and has illustrations from it. You can buy it here.

The Christmas Tale Of Peter Rabbit
This is a book inspired by the tale of Peter Rabbit. It tells the story of Peter Rabbit and his cousin Benjamin Bunny's attempt to save a turkey named William from being on the Christmas Day dinner table. This is such a lovely book with the same classical feel and illustrations of Beatrix Potters original story. You can buy it here.

Baby's First Christmas Stories
This is such a lovely book for babies and toddlers. It has some classic Christmas stories such as The Nutcracker and The Little Fir Tree which are all just two pages long - perfect for short attention spans. It also features some Christmas songs.

The Twelve Days Of Christmas
Of course we had to read this book on December 12th and the beginning of the twelve days of Christmas. This has all the lyrics to the song and I actually sung this book to my boy. You can buy similar here.

I'm really looking forward to the next six books we're going to read. Bedtime stories have been so lovely the past twelve days and I'm so looking forward to the next twelve.


  1. I love that you read the 12 days of Christmas today! That's adorable and perfect for the day!
    The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit looks really good though, I'll have to look into that one!

  2. What a cute stuff! Have a happy christmas!
