It’s the hap-happiest read-aloud time of the year! I don’t know anyone who lives this out better than my good friend, Elizabeth Foss, so I invited her onto the show to chat up Christmas and Advent read-alouds.
We’re so excited about this episode of the podcast, we’re publishing a whole week early.
This episode will help you:
- find the best Christmas and Advent books
- celebrate the season without getting overwhelmed
- and enjoy December with your family!
And if you like this episode, you’ll love Elizabeth’s eBook about living out Advent and Christmas in the home.
