My Favorite Christmas And Holiday Books
My Favorite Christmas and Holiday Books
These are my, and my kids, favorite Christmas and holiday books.
Santa, Are You For Real? by Harold Myra. This is an older book and can be hard to find. Some used books stores or online stores still carry it. If you have a kid who is starting to question Santa, this book is great at explaining the Santa story to them gently.
The Christmas Cookie Case. Ok, so Scooby Doo and Christmas may not seem like a perfect match, but we have a Scooby book for almost every holiday. My kids love Scooby! (Now if I can just find an Easter one, we may be set.)
Scooby Doo and the Scary Snowman. This one is more snow themed, than Christmas.
A Merry Scary Holiday.
The Secret Santa Mystery
The Night Before Christmas. There are many versions of this out there, including a few non-traditional ones that are great too! (The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Dinosaurs Night Before Christmas, A Pirates Night Before Christmas, Can You See What I See: Night Before Christmas)
A Christmas Carol. This one may be for older kids, but it is a classic.
The Crippled Lamb by Max Lucado
Snowmen at Work. This is a cute book about a boy who wonders if snowmen have jobs. There are also hidden pictures of a mouse, rabbit, cat, and T-Rex on the pages. There is also a Snowmen at Christmas.
Gingerbread Pirates. My youngest loves pirates right now, so we have a lot of pirate books. This book is about a boy who makes pirate gingerbread men for Christmas. The cookies come alive at night and try to figure what Christmas is about and just who Santa is.
Corduroy's Merry Christmas. My kids loved this book when they were younger.
Elf On The Shelf. (Check out my Elf On The Shelf posts! I post where he goes every night, so check back to see where he moved to.)
Frosty The Snowman. This version is nice because you can record yourself reading the book and singing along!
A Charlie Brown Christmas. I have many other books that I read before this one, but it is a classic.
