We’ve started collecting books about Christmas + or about snow to create a feeling of Christmas, and December even though we are far from real snowflakes.

We haven’t picked out any of them, they have all been gifted or passed along. So I’ve started a tenative list of ones we’d like to buy or collect. Most of them come from “Honey For a Child’s Heart”, and internet research (maybe a little too much).
