Christmas gifts

There was something for everyone.
Even the boys brought thoughtful gifts from Germany for all of us.

There were sweet little presents.....

.....and books for me.

And there were books for the children.

This one is called "One Winter's Day" in English. Highly recommended (preschool-grade 1)! It is a sweet, tender story about sharing and the pictures are really beautiful. The woolens are made of a feltlike fabric, so your child can really feel them.

In English "Little Beaver and the Echo". We didn't read the story yet, but the soft watercolor pictures are so sweet. I really love this book!
For preschool and grade 1.

And this is what I made for my best friend from the Czech Republic, a little basket filled with tasteful Christmas goodies from the Netherlands.
