My kids are loving this too. They are 2 and 4.5 years old and all our books this year are Christmas themed - so far we have had a mix of classics (the twelve days of Christmas), activity books and others (eg. Peppa's Christmas).

Wow, what a great idea. Think I'll look at doing this next year. Have been trying to find a good idea for an advent calendar for a few years now and haven't come across anything yet that I really like. I'll spend the next 12 months looking for suitable Christmas books.
Thank you for sharing!!

yeah we are doing it.
My DD loves reading, so I bought her some new books as well as just wrapping up some of her current books.
Only problem is that 3 of the new books I bought are really long so it is taking her a lot of extra time to read those
Its fun though, she is loving it.

We are doing it for dd. She is 2.5 and loves that the 'father Christmas elf' as she's decided brings here a new book each night after dinner. Dh is pretty happy there is a new one for bedtime too!
I love her naivety, we put my phone in the playroom with a jingle ringtone and dh calls me when she's done with dinner. She thinks its the elf coming!
We have such a random mix of books. My cousin gave me a huge box of her kids old books halfway through November so I sorted through those and just picked out the 25. There were a few Christmas stories in there too which we are leaving until the last few days

Anyone else doing the 25 books of Christmas with there kids?
We're doing it for DDs bedtime story. They are ALL xmas books and we have a range from very simple 1,2,3 type books to pop up books, felt books, lift the flap books and longer story books. I'm hoping to use the same books each year for a while since she will only see them once a year. She's currently 15 months. For the longer stories we are condensing it and talking about the pictures etc as she gets older and some of the more simple books are perhaps too simple (I'm thinking an age where she can easily read them herself) then we'll replace them with a more appropriate xmas book. The collection will change as she gets older :-) she's loving having a new story every night as we usually just change the bed book once a month. She gets very excited about choosing one from the xmas book drawer! Next year/year after we will start wrapping them so she can unwrap one each night. The xmas eve book will always be 'the night before Christmas' though. It's the copy I had when I was little
