Christmas Book Activity Countdown 2012 - Book List

Very soon, Craft, Interrupted will be starting another year of 
Christmas Book Countdown Activities!
I did this last year and my boys absolutely loved it.  We read one or two Christmas storybooks each night for the month of December, and I organized a craft or activity to go along with each day.  If you search Christmas Book Countdown in the sidebar, you'll find the posts from last year.

I'm excited to say that this year, Tiffany and I are splitting the countdown odds/evens.
We each chose twelve books and will be sharing them with activities on alternating days 
leading up to Christmas.  I'm sharing our book lists below, so you can hit up your library and join along!
I will also be compiling a supply list for my craft activities so you can have things on hand.
