What Linc is Reading: Our holiday book tradition

1 Comment

Linc is a big reader in the on the broom

Almost every day he will pull a few books off his shelf and bring them to me to read.

Today he brought me Room on the Broom by Axel Scheffler.

Even though this is very much a Halloween inspired book and it is very clearly not Halloween.

I was excited to open the book.

Because I knew that I would find a special note inside.

Holiday Book Tradition

I started a tradition when Linc was just a wee little tot of buying a book for every holiday of his first year of life.

In the cover of that book I wrote him a note of what he did on this holiday.

Where we were.

Who we spent it with.

And any other information I thought was meaningful.


I am so glad that I did this.

Now we have a book to read on every holiday and it is a great keepsake of things we have done.

Even though it is nowhere near Halloween it was fun opening that book today and reading the memories that we have made so far in his life.


Now it is Bowen’s turn for his holiday books.

I am so glad that Linc brought me that book today.

It was a great reminder that I need to head to the bookstore and pick up a St. Patrick’s day book for my little BoBo.
