I’ve mentioned this before, but our kids love reading. We’re very lucky! I know every family isn’t like that so we try to encourage their love of reading in any way we can and at Christmas time, that means more Christmas books! I pulled together some of our favorite selections in case you’re looking to encourage your little readers as well.
Christmas Books for Kids
These range in age group from the youngest ((I Spy Christmas: A Book of Picture Riddles) child to older elementary school tween set (Polar Express) to the young at heart (I can’t recommend The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree: An Appalachian Story enough!) so everyone is sure to enjoy cozying up to the tree with a mug of hot cocoa to read a new book each night!
