The 4 Gifts Idea (Read)...


1. Something we want
2. Something we need
3. Something to wear
4.  Something to read

 Thank you to Sunny with a Chance of Sprinkles and Vintage Sunshine for hosting this series and making me rethink the way we do Christmas!

Back for the final week in the 4 Gifts Series with our "something to read" list:

Of all the lists, this one is the easiest...maybe too easy because my kids love books and I love buying books for them.  I definitely couldn't stick to the 1-3 limit on this category. 

 If you are looking to not spend a fortune on books, check out the Scholastic Book Orders your child(ren) bring home from school.  The books are great prices and every time your order online, you get a $5 off your next order coupon!  You might want to ask the teacher to get the order to you and not hand it to your child to bring home (that happened to me recently...oh well they got some early Christmas presents.)  Another place I have found some really cheap, cute books is Ollie's Discount Store.  Not sure if you have one in your area but you can get hardback books for as cheap as $1.99!

For Harper and Palmer (daughters ages 6 & 4):
 These are the books that they picked out but they will be getting books I have ordered from Scholastic too.

Archer (son age 13 months): 
 Archer will also be getting some books from the Scholastic book order.
 I know I'm so behind on the Hunger Games books but I want to read them before I see the movie.

What is something you have been wanting to read that you could ask for, for Christmas?  I would love some more suggestions on books for me. I love to read, it's finding time to do it that's the hard part!

  1. I loved the Hunger Games books! You won't be able to put them down :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by Meg! I have heard that so many times so I have to get those books...I get sucked into books easily and can't stop reading until I'm done so looks like I better clear my schedule for some reading! haha

  2. I also loved the Hunger Games trilogy!!! And we had that same shoe tying book -- good stuff!!

    1. Did the shoe tying book work for you child(ren)? I came across several books and didn't know if one was better than the others. Thanks for stopping by Karri!

  3. I love to read, and love that my 6 year old is starting to love it too!

    1. Me too Jessica. And my 6 year old has all the sudden become an amazing reader and likes to read to her little sister and's priceless! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Get ready for some really late nights.... once you start the Hunger Games you won't be able to put them down until you are finished!

    1. That's what I've heard Wendy...can't wait to start!
