Reading Christmas books with your kids is a wonderful past time this time of year. Many of these adorable books help kids to understand the meaning of Christmas and feelings present at this time of year. I always enjoyed adding something new to our family Christmas library each year and I love sharing our books with my grandchildren now. If you haven't added any new additions to your collection yet this year, We have some selections for you to check out. Many of them are still available on Amazon Prime, ready to be delivered today or tomorrow. Or, you can get them on Kindle.
Many of my grandchildren LOVE Daniel Tiger! I love the lessons taught on the TV show. This Christmas board book is sure to please!
I was introduced to The Little Blue Truck when my grandson Adrian was born. There is always a sweet message in these books. This one is a board book with twinkly lights!
Another board book! This one is a sweet rhyming book that tells the animals roles in the birth of the Baby Jesus.
Cool Pete the Cat teaches that having the Christmas Spirit is groovy!
When I was a kid, it always seemed sad to me that hibernating animals missed Christmas! Ha Ha! This story addresses what would happen when a Bear Stays Up for Christmas!
This is the story of how a tiny mouse's actions affect many! It has a 5 star rating!
The humor and word play in this book have made it a family favorite for years!
This is a story of friendship with beautiful illustrations! It is the one my husband is reading to my grandchildren in the photo!
The Christmas Wish was on the New York Time's best seller list. Beautifully written and illustrated, it reminds me of a Jan Brett story. It is about a little girl who wants to be one of Santa's elves and what she does about it.
Speaking of Jan Brett, one of my favorite children's authors, here is a treasury that will be a wonderful addition to any Christmas collection. It is a great price for a collection of 7 of her most beloved stories.
If you love LIttle Women the way we do, here is a picture book that takes a sweet moment from that novel just to help you celebrate Christmas. If you have a child just about old enough to read the novel, this picture book would be a nice introduction to it. (And, the novel would be a great Christmas gift!)
Similarly, there are a number of special Christmas picture books pulled from Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House books. The simple joys of the holidays in those early settler times are heart warming.
Finally, this story, The Littlest Angel has been around for a long time. I grew up with it and we have owned a copy for a long time. But, just recently I was reintroduced to it by a wonderful storyteller who brought new meaning to the story for me in the beautiful way that she told it. The message in the book is so sweet. I began searching Amazon after hearing the telling of the story again after all of these years so that I could give it to my grandchildren and I learned that it is out of print! But, there are copies available, but they are pretty pricey! The investment is well worth it though for the beauty of this story. You won't find stories like this one written today.
I hope you will look for some quiet moments to sit and enjoy some reading time and to feel the magic this year that reading a Christmas story can bring.
And here are a few awesome last minute reading gifts:
