November Book Cart

We are blessed to have two of these lovely portable libraries! We keep one upstairs in the "school room" which we update seasonally or with books featuring specific subjects we are studying... and this one, kept downstairs in our dining room, is updated monthly with picture books for upcoming feast days. Here is a peek at this month's book cart: 

The All Saints' Day Party • The Mantle of Charity • St. Martin of Tours 

Fir Tree Stacking Set • St. Elizabeth from Naturally Catholic

Various Ostheimer Toys including St. Martin and the Beggar

Wooden Story Stacking Toy (Natural) from The Wooden Wagon

You can check out the complete list (or at least complete as of a few years ago) 


  1. Wonderful selection of books for November. Thank you for sharing these treasures. Snow on Martinmas looks splendid. And we did have snow on Monday! How precious your little Grace is with her big beautiful brown eyes. How she has grown...

    1. We haven't had snow this week, but it has snowed 4 or 5 times here already this year, starting in September... too early! I do hope it snows for Christmas, once the boys are safely home again! Thank you for all the sweet comments you leave. They always make me smile!

  2. Have you found that The Wooden Wagon has any good deals for Black Friday or Cyber Monday? We have started collecting some of the ostheimer farm animals and I'm hoping for a sale before Christmas!

    1. They actually had an "Early Bird" sale this past weekend (10% off orders under $300 and 15% off orders $300+) and I placed another order for this Christmas! I do think they'll have another though... The last couple years they have had sales just after Thanksgiving... Looks like I saved 10-15% on my orders 11/24/2017 and 11/27/2017 and then again 11/26/2018. Bella Luna also usually has a day after Thanksgiving when their Ostheimer toys are on sale (from what I remember they have a 12 days of Christmas Sale or something like that with different toys on sale each day).
