And we’re at the sixth book of Christmas! How exciting!
I’m not going to lie, however, I’ve been less than excited about today’s post coming up. Why, you ask? Well, because of the line.
Six geese a laying. Sigh. I HATE geese. I find them to be ugly, mean birds. And that’s probably because when I was 16 a goose literally chased me and honked and all that scary stuff. It is not a fond memory. So yeah, not a huge fan of the bird.
But how to reconcile disliking the bird and gifting a good book? That’s been the struggle! Luckily, with the help of some smart friends, I have the perfect one.
The Book: Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes
DUH. Looking back this was a fairly obvious choice. But I absolutely did not see it at first. What stories fit better for this Book Day of Christmas? None. There are so many different nursery rhymes that become part of the “Mother Goose” umbrella, and they’re all wonderful. Whether you’re reading about Humpty Dumpty, Mary and her lamb, or Jack and Jill, these stories are sure to put a smile on your face – when you’re young, at least! When you get older, they tend to be way scarier than you realized! Whoops.
Who to Give it To: New or Soon-to-be parents! Or, toddlers! These short little stories should be staples on the bookshelves of any budding reader, in my opinion!
