Children's Book Tuesday - Christmas Edition

The two books I am sharing today are both good books, but what makes them special in our family is simply the tradition of reading them every year.  And by 'every year' I mean every year since I was a kid, including those years when we were all grown-ups, before Dale came along.

First up is one of the "I Spy" books.  These are always so fun!

Do you spy the clock in this picture?

And then, there is Tosca:

We first fell in love with this book because Tosca looked so much like one of our cats.  Our kitty has been gone a long time now, but we still love to bring Tosca home for each Christmas!

Aren't these pictures amazing!?

Definitely worth a read!

For more great Christmas books, visit The Joyful Chaos!

Tosca makes me think of a book that I love in that way. It is not a tradition for me but I love to pick it up from time to time when I need a laugh. It is called "The Story of Mrs. Lovewright and Purrless Her Cat". Beautiful pictures if you and your boys have not read it. If you have, then you know too.
