Book Flood

We've been hearing a lot recently about the Icelandic tradition of giving books on Christmas Eve: Jolabokaflod. You don't have to be Icelandic or celebrate Christmas to join in the spirit of this tradition. For a frugal variation, consider borrowing a stack of great books from the library and wrapping them. Invite your child to choose a wrapped book from the pile to make your everyday story time an exciting literacy-laden surprise.

Remember, the San Antonio Public Library will be closed December 24, 25, 26, 30, 31, and January 1. So, stock up now! Or, if you don't make it to the library, take a look at our online kids' reading room and digital collections: https://sanantonio.overdrive.com/library/kids
