Book Nook: Charlie and Noel

Advent starts on Sunday! So I thought I’d talk a little about an Advent book. I purchased Charlie and Noel on the recommendation of a friend, and I look forward to reading it with the children. It tells the story of Charlie, who hates the waiting of Advent and just wants Christmas to arrive. Noel, though, helps him learn more about Advent and Christmas. The story has a different chapter for every day in December leading up to Christmas, so it works perfectly for this year, when Advent starts 1 December. Each chapter ends with suggestions for activities you can do with the kids, too. I think we’ll enjoy reading it together.
