10 Awesome Christmas Books for Children

I love reading with my daughter and Christmas books are some of my faves. I thought I would share some of the ones I love the most. There are so many more on my list but these top it. Click on the book cover to be taken to Amazon to buy them. (There are affiliate links in them which just means I will get a little bit of dough to buy my kiddo books too! Thanks in advance.)

Here's the newest twist on the familiar tale of There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly.

"There was a cold lady who swallowed some snow.
I don't know why she swallowed some snow.
Perhaps you know."

It made my daughter smile and giggle.

A beautiful story about a small lamb who doesn't feel he belongs because he is not as "perfect" as the other lambs. He has a tremendous friend, named Abigail, who always reminds him that "God has a special place for those who don't belong." A tearjerker.

This book is, obviously, about a child's ride to the North Pole but more so it is about belief in the magic of Christmas.

A Christmas counting book. My seven year old loves it still

This is the original story, with the real face of the scowling, mean-spirited Grinch. That face changes from bad to worse, and then to tender when he finally "gets" the meaning of Christmas.

A sweet story that reminds us that Christmas is not about the gifts and decorations but about God Himself.

I love that it talks about the Candy Cane being a symbol of J - for Jesus.

I always love the rhyme and flow of the Bear books. This is no exception. A very sweet story about friendship.

It is a short story about a little elf that feels he's too little to be helpful. Eventually he realizes how valuable he is, no matter his age or size.

Olive looks a lot like a dog but...she thinks that she is a reindeer. Knowing that it is the time of year when all reindeer help Santa Claus she decides to hop on a bus to the North Pole. Santa has a feeling that Olive is just what his sleigh pulling team needs. And he is right!

Which book do you think your child(ren) would like? Do you have any special Christmas books to share?
