I’m calling this the Christmas Books Edition. Because you did want to know what books Santa brought for the girls. Right?
Starting from the youngest, it was K’s year to get an American girl doll. One of the reasons I like those dolls is that the historic ones (at least) come with their own set of books. K chose Caroline, set during the War of 1812, and is happily enjoying the books that came with her.
All A asked for was books. But since she got the Percy Jackson series (her own copy) for her birthday, all that was really left was her own copy of the Harry Potter series. (For the record: that makes three complete sets of books here at the Fox house: a hardback, first edition [4-7 anyway. The others are hardback, but I’m not sure they’re first edition]; paperback old edition; and paperback new edition.) She was very happy!
And C got her favorite Marie Antoinette book: Bad Queen by Carolyn Meyer. She actually put down Daughter of Smoke & Bone (which she had been reading) to read Bad Queen before the end of break, she was that happy to have it in her hands!
And M got a book as well, though it didn’t make it into the Christmas box we sent her…
It’s waiting for her when she gets back home.
What books did you get/give this year?
