21 More Days Until Christmas!…

Today is Day 3 of the story, and it’s a special day for Belinda! Today is the day she can tell her friends at school why her mom is so far away.  

If your mom was far away, I’ll be that your friends would have questions too, so be sure you find out why Belinda’s mom is far away from her little girl. Here’s a hint: It’s a very important reason!!

Bedtime Stories and Hard Questions!  

If you read yesterday’s story, you know that Belinda’s mom had a very hard question for her!  And today, Belinda is ready to begin finding answers and drawing pictures of her ideas! She likes to show her mom the pictures on Skype and talk about finding Christmas. What a great thing to talk about before you go to sleep at night!

Oh no! You don’t have a book yet?…

It’s okay! The first story starts today, but there are TWENTY-FIVE stories, and it’s easy to catch up.  Here’s a picture of Custard, who is a big star of the story (you definitely want to meet Custard!). 

My family reads a story every day after dinner. How about you? Do you have a special time for reading an Advent Calendar bedtime story?

Advent Calendar

Advent Starts Tomorrow! Time to Start Reading!…  

What an exciting time! If you already have a copy of The Girl Who Found Christmas: An Advent Calendar Storybook, you are ready to curl up and read!

If not, you’ll be able to catch up on the bedtime stories once you have a book. The hardback version and the paperback version are the best for sit-down storytelling, but the Ebook is available for instant download at a low price.

The picture on this page is a paper Advent Calendar, and they are good too. But I have to think that a whole bedtime story is better than just a picture (but maybe because I really love Belinda and her adventures with Custard the cat and her best friends Elizabeth and Andrew).

When my children were small, Advent Calendar time was after dinner every single day in December – well, until Christmas! It was fun for all of us to look forward to Advent Calendar time, and I hope you will look forward to a story from Belinda every single day!

Did you know… 

Children can color their own version of Belinda, Custard and their snowman? There is a link from the home page of this site (or simply click here to download the page). Many thanks to illustrator Dayne Sislen who created a different version of her beautiful cover so that kids can turn loose their own creativity!

You can use the comments section to tell me about your child’s unique version of Belinda!
