I'm planning if I get my arse in gear to do a sort of book advent calendar alongside the dc's normal chocfest. So I thought I'd get 24 Christmas themed books, wrap them and then they can unwrap one each bedtime. I've got four or five from previous years but am missing the other 20! Any suggestions gratefully welcomed (dc's are 8&6 )

You can get a book about where you live
Eg

I got one for where we live in Tesco!

This would be a good set

I know the Harry and the Dinosaurs and Aliens love Underpants series do Christmas books too.

Maybe also a Christmas song book with a CD.
