Mosaic Book Packages

Thanks to all those who purchased book packages for Advent/Christmas! We have three left with just a few days until Advent begins.

People who ordered the package got one of the these three books as the "surprise" in the Advent/Christmas package: The Night of Las Posadas by Tomie DePaola, Lucia Morning in Sweden by Ewa Rydaker, and Baboushka, A Christmas Folktale from Russia by Arthur Conley.

We had hoped to include a cookie press for the Feasts of St. Nicholas and St. Lucy in the book packages, but we didn't order them in time.
They will be posted for sale on the website in a few days. These are fun and easy to use with children and reasonably priced.

We will be putting together a package for January if you want to start planning for that now. It will include the 5 books for January featured in the Mosaic, plus a set of Marian coloring cards from Illuminated Ink. More details to come!
