We started our family tradition of a book a day Advent calendar in 2020. My son absolutely loved opening a new Christmas story every night before bed.
The Advent Story came to be in late September 2021 as I started to update my son's storybook Advent Calender with a few new Christmas books. I knew I wasn't the only parent out there who wanted to read the best Christmas stories in the lead up to the big day, so I took a leap of faith and launched the Advent Story.
Every book in our calenders is chosen and wrapped by hand, by me, Livvy, and has been read to my children.
Reading to my children is my favourite activity as a mum. I'm not the best at imaginitive play but I do invest as much time as possible every day reading with them to help their imaginations grow and to foster a love of reading that I hope will last a life time.
