One of my favorite things I’ve done as a mom is to read to my kids at bedtime. We have read some amazing books together that have given us adventures and conversations and years of memories. My kids couldn’t wait for bedtime to hear the next story or chapter in the books we read. It is an especially special activity during Advent.

One of the phrases my kids always use when looking forward to something is, “how many sleeps until…” When I saw this sign at Hobby Lobby I knew it would be a special way to count the days through Advent as we await the birth of Jesus.
In anticipation each night our bedtime story is a Christmas story of the Nativity. Even as they have gotten older they still love to read the favorite picture books from years’ past.
Some Books to Add to Your Collection
Read cuddled up together on the couch, read laying by the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree. Read in front of your nativity scene or tuck them into bed and read the best bedtime story ever told.
There are beautiful options for me an Advent devotion reading for me too. Here is the book I read last year, Because of Bethlehem by Max Lucado.
And the year before that I read Ann Voskamp’s The Greatest Gift. I highly recommend both books!
This year I will be reading, A Thrill of Hope by Erin Stache.
