First Week of Advent 2011 – Wednesday

Possum is 5 years 6 months

Bandicoot is 3 years 4 months

Little Princess is 11 months


You might remember this book


from last Advent.  Well today it appeared in the Countdown to Christmas Box, complete with the accompanying Advent calendar.  The first story in the book is for the 30th of November, so we read it tonight.

We have been using this book since Possum’s first Advent, and there is something lovely and comforting about revisiting it each year.  I think each year I get something more out of Little Bear’s journey, let alone the kids.


image This is the calendar.  The picture is of Benjamin Bear and his Mum.  Each night he opens a window on his calendar to find the same picture that we find, and his Mum tells him the next adventure of Little Bear following the star to Bethlehem.
