24 Christmas Books for Kids

24 Christmas Books for Kids

‘Tis the season of magical anticipation, hot cocoa, and snuggling by the cozy fireplace (or radiators!) with a Christmas story in hand. My kiddos love to be read to – even the teenager and tween, so during the Christmas season, it’s fun to find books centered around the holidays. Remember, no one is ever too old for a picture book! Here are 24 books, one a day for December leading up to Christmas, to help bring the holiday spirit to your house. They’re also great for adding to your homeschool holiday reading list. There’s also a printable calendar with all of the books listed at the end of the article, as well. Use it for your Advent Calendar and place a sticker on each day as you read the listed book.

Holiday Money Saving Tip: If you’d like to purchase any of the books (or do any online holiday shopping really), I’d encourage you to go through eBates. You get cash back for shopping at online retailers like Barnes & Noble. It’s my favorite way to shop during the holidays, because there’s just something fun about getting money back for making the purchases I need to make anyway.

I recently received and read The Myth of Santa’s Beard by Sharon Thayer and absolutely must include it in the list of books for the Christmas holiday. Not only is the story charming and sweet, but the story behind the story is even more touching. I highly encourage you to pick up a copy and include it in your holiday tradition! It’s a Christmas Book Must-Have!

Have a Merry Christmas!
