2013: Scaredy Squirrel Prepares for Christmas: A Safety Guide for Scaredies, by Mélanie Watt

I really like several of these titles because they’re funny or just fun for kids to read, but my favorite title from Day 7 is Listen to the Silent Night. I always like a well-done nativity story, and this one actually stretches out the whole experience from Mary and Joseph setting off for Bethlehem to the shepherds and wise men doing the same. Its focus on the sounds means many actions are described, and it’s written in poem form, so reading it aloud while your child examines the beautiful pictures is a must!
