Swedish Christmas books

Speaking of Swedish Christmas, it’s something near-and-dear to my heart because my parents were from Sweden. Every December 13th, we continue a long family tradition of celebrating St. Lucia.  In the darkest hours of the morning a young girl with a wreath of candles on her head brings hope, warmth and light to the darkest, coldest time of the year.  I have taken all of our favorite recipes, activities and books that celebrate this event, along with the history of Santa Lucia as well, and created a very special color pdf for the holiday season.

The Celebrating a Santa Lucia Christmas pdf guide is my gift to you and simply click the image below to enjoy these fun family-friendly activities. Click this link or click the image below to grab your copy and create some new traditions in your own family! Thank you!

JIAB Recap Of the Week!

The Saturday Book Club Linky Party is next Saturday! On Saturday December 14th, we will be hosting yet another Saturday Book Club Linky Party and we encourage everyone to share their children’s Holiday book-inspired activities, book reviews and book-related recipes articles your blog may have.  We look forward to seeing you at the party 🙂

Saturday Book Club

P.S This was not Saturday Book Club related, but last week I co-hosted an amazing Multicultural Children’s Book linky with Mia from Pragmatic Mom! For some great reading ideas, you can view that linky HERE.

It always delights me that, despite the fact this post was written quite some time ago, it’s still one of my most viewed post most weeks:

Don’t Forget

Don’t forget to check out the BookBoard’s Book Shelf of the week!

Bookboard’s goal is to create motivated readers, and we do this by re-imagining story time for today’s digital age. As kids read, they’re rewarded by unlocking new books to add to their collections. This will encourage your kids will keep coming back to unlock the next story again and again.

As your kids’ interests and reading level changes, Bookboard suggests other stories based on what your kids have been reading, right when they’re most interested. The service is designed to grow with your kids, with new books added all the time.

BookBoard has a free trial I highly suggest getting this for your kids or grandkids this holiday season. Click the image below to learn more about their free trial.
