It’s no secret that I love to read and share a good book with my children. I especially look forward to Christmas books, because one of our traditions is to buy a few new ones each year and read our collection only during the Christmas Season. These books are very special to the kids as they anticipate and prepare for Christmas Day.
I have already written a post on the best kids book every child should know, and now I am sharing 10 of the best Christmas books for kids. I hope this list helps you find new favorites!
