A unique option for an Advent Calendar is a book Advent Calendar! Select books for your family and wrap them up for under the tree! Each night, unwrap one book to read together – you will build up the excitement for Christmas and encourage a love of reading at the same time!
We love to use Usborne Books & More because our kids reread the books over and over (and over!) and they’re fun and educational – and aren’t available on Amazon
Usborne Books & More has been around for decades and is well known for their engaging, educational, and interactive books. They are also a Children’s Publisher of the Year recipient! There are books for kids of all ages, from babies to young adults. Check out these great books here!
DEAL: For every $40 in retail books that you purchase, you are allowed 1 Customer Special – check them out here.
If you’d rather have the shopping done for you, visit our friend Glenna’s Facebook group and ask her to be your personal shopper! She is a former librarian and very knowledgeable about Usborne Books & More’s wide range of products She’ll make you a wish list based on your family’s ages and interests. Some of her family’s favorites are:
- Peek Inside the Farm – a wonderful peek-through and lift-the-flap book showing all the comings and goings of the farm!
- Lift-the-Flap General Knowledge – a great question and answer book with TONS of flaps to flip. Great for inquiring minds!
- Big Wipe-Clean Activity Book– the wipe clean books are so great for reusable fun. With several activities per page, the wipe-clean books are great for entertaining kiddos on car trips or at restaurants!
- Shine-A-Light: On the Space Station – the Shine-A-Light books make great gifts – especially when paired with a flashlight! Shine the light behind the page to see a hidden image and bring more depth to the story.
- Busy Train Book – this book comes with a pull-back train toy to run on the four tracks that are built into the book’s pages! So much fun!
