Holiday Books Day 8: The Longest Christmas List Ever

Each day leading up to Christmas, I'm going to feature a Children's book that I've really enjoyed and would make a great choice to share with your family for the holidays. It may be one I've loved for years or one I've just recently found, but all would be great additions to your Christmas story list. Hopefully you'll find something to enjoy!

Jacket description:
"Every year, Trevor is disappointed at Christmas because there is ALWAYS something he forgets to put on his list...but next year will be different! With a foolproof plan and great determination, Trevor begins compiling his ultimate wish list the day after Christ and faithfully continues for the next 364 days, creating THE LONGEST CHRISTMAS LIST EVER!

Trevor may remember all the toys he wants, but it seems he's forgotten a thing or two about the true meaning of Christmas. Luckily, Santa knows just what to give him: the gift of friendship."

Most of my Christmas choices so far have been rather sentimental in nature (and most of them probably will be), but today's selection is definitely funny! The Longest Christmas List Ever, written and illustrated by Gregg & Evan Spiridellis, will make you and your children laugh and giggle, but ends up with a pretty great message. And the facial expressions on the characters are awesome!

The text rhymes very nicely, making for a great storytime read aloud. With it's message of love, rather than materialism, this is a great choice to read to all kids, reminding them what Christmas is really about.

It just came out in paperback this Fall, adding it to the affordability list for Christmas gifts!
