30 of the Best Christmas Books for Kids, from the classics to the new and everything in between. Books the whole family will enjoy reading.
Best Christmas Books for Kids
A few years ago, we saw this cute idea on Pinterest (you probably saw it too!) to wrap a book for each day of December until Christmas. The kids pick a book and unwrap it each day, as a sort of advent calendar. So for the past few years, we’ve been doing it, and the kids absolutely LOVE it.
As I mentioned in Top Thanksgiving Books for Toddlers and Preschoolers, we have a stash of books for each season and holiday that we switch out. These are some of our absolute favorites, from the new to the classics, and I’m sure you (and your kids!) will love them too.
To view the books (available on Amazon.com), you can either click on the book picture or on the title description beneath it.
