Wombat Divine…

…and other must-have Christmas books!!

So, I have a thing for wombats–the short, squatty, awkward, fluffy, adorable little marsupials from the Land Down Under.
  
Isn’t he so cute?! 
 While in Australia in 2009, I even went in for a wombat encounter at Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo!  So, totally awesome!
Now, I’m sure you’re wondering what my love of wombats has to do with Christmas books, so here’s your answer…
Imagine my surprise & excitement when I found this title at the library yesterday!  I love it!!
Wombat Divine is an adorable tale of an eager little wombat who wants nothing more than a part in the local Nativity play.  After a series of disappointments, Wombat finally lands the perfect part! Author Mem Fox does a fantastic job and the illustrations of all kinds of Aussie creatures are very cute!  This is a new favorite and one that we are going to have to own instead of just borrow from the library!
Here are a few other titles that we are hoping to add to our Christmas library too:

Mortimer’s Christmas Manger

Snowmen at Christmas
I was so excited to see this title and can’t wait to get it, because…

…two years ago we got Snowmen at Night and it’s a favorite around here!
We also have these two Christmas books and like them a lot.  With so much focus everywhere else on Santa, Reindeer, Snowmen, etc., I really like having these books around that focus on the real reason for Christmas!
Jesus, Me, and My Christmas Tree

What are YOUR family’s favorite Christmas books?  Please share in the comments!  I love good books!
