Library Haul: Christmas Books for Kids

Going to the library (or the bookstore) with kids can be kind of intimidating. We want to make that experience easier for you by giving you a preview of the books in our local library and in our home library.

This way you don’t need to worry about a book being too boring, too beyond their reading level, or containing content you might want to be aware of before taking it home.

We live in Thailand, so it’s a challenge to get our hands on new books for our kids. Thankfully, there’s an international school nearby that has an open library we can raid for exciting and informative new reads every week. This week, we’re looking at (click on the links below to find them on Amazon):

Avalanche Annie: A Not-So-Tall Tale

Turtle in the Sea

Crinkleroots Guide to Knowing Animal Habitats

Animals of the World (sorry, Amazon doesn’t carry it)

First 100 Animals

Alphabet Book (Farmyard Tales Books Series)

Ladybug Girl

The Wild Christmas Reindeer

[ The Night Before Christmas [With DVD] ] By Brett, Jan ( Author ) [ 2011 ) [ Hardcover ]

Santa Calls

How about you? What are some of your favorite Christmas books?

Adventure English Camp Video

Jacki and I helped out at a local English teaching center’s summer camp these last two weeks. These are some incredibly energetic, gifted, and loving kids. I think I got more hugs than I have ever gotten in my life. At the end of it, we all went to the Chiang Rai zoo, where we found a runaway peacock, a three legged iguana, and a monkey that almost pulled Jacki into its cage.

Angkor Wat & Tonle Sap

Jacki and I spent a week in December visiting our friend, Fred Garmon, and his PCL team in Cambodia. We spent a day on Tonle Sap lake, home to one of the largest gatherings of refugees on the planet. Later, we visited Angkor Wat, where I ran a half marathon.
