Let’s see what book is behind day #1!

This giant well-crafted book measures 12 inches x 16 1/2 inches and comes with a storage sleeve that slips entirely over the Advent calendar which would be great if you want to store it for the next year. The sleeve is also where the included books are listed so if you don’t want the kids to see what books might be next, you can remove it before giving it to them.

Advent Calendar Opening Windows

Each day, kids can open a window or door in the Advent calendar to find the book for that day. The calendar is created with thick, colorful cardboard with perforations around each numbered window, and a cutout perfect for little fingers.

The numbered calendar doors obscure the title of the books until the window is opened.

You could store the read books back in the doors or make a little book display next to the calendar as the countdown continues.

The Advent calendar is free-standing and could be integrated into any holiday decor.
