Favorite Christmas Books!

 

Today I want to share one of our family's favorite holiday traditions & favorite Christmas books.  Each year we like to set up the Christmas tree and pull out all the holiday decor.  After we have everything set up, I pull out the "first gift of Christmas" for the kids.  It's always a pair of Christmas jammies and a new book for the season.  We love have a big pile of Christmas books to read over and over.  Here are some of our favorites from throughout the years!  

 

Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner | This book is such a fun one!  It tells the story of what snowmen do in their "free time" and why they look misshapen the next day!  The rhymes and pictures are perfect!

 

Auntie Claus by Elise Primavera | This is such a fun spin on your typical Santa Claus story.  

 

Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree by Barry Grant | We got this book for the kid's this year and we've read it lots of times already!  I love that it has a deeper meaning of sharing at Christmas time.  

 

Christmas Songs: Interactive Music Book | The kids love to push the buttons and hear these traditional Christmas songs.  I love that it plays the entire song rather than just a line or two.  

 

Nativity Flap Book by Usborne | This nativity book is perfect for little ones.  The flaps are perfect for their little hands and it shares the beautiful meaning of Christmas. 

 

Merry Christmas Mr. Mouse by Caralyn & Mark Buehner | The Buehner's really have it down when it comes to writing and illustrating children's books!  This is such a fun story about a family of mice hoping to celebrate their first Christmas.  This is one of my personal favorites to read! 

 

The Twelve Days of Christmas: Revolving Picture Book | This is such a beautiful rendition of the traditional twelve days of Christmas.  The pictures rotate through and the kids enjoy the visuals.  

 

The Tale of Three Trees by David Cook | I remember my parents reading this book to me as a child.  It has such a beautiful message about Jesus Christ that inspires me this time of year.  

 

Happy holiday reading!
