christmas books children loveWhen I was a kid, I couldn’t wait until my dad went into the attic and brought down the box of Christmas books! Looking for Christmas books children love? I have been delighted to find many of the old favorites I remember have been reprinted again so I can share them with my children.

Nothing beats snuggling up near the tree reading with your child. (Though I do have some other great ideas for holiday fun here!) And even as they get older, they will always yearn for the magic of a Christmas book.

Here are some I love, both old favorites and new classics!
