Today, I’m joining my friend Leslie at Once Upon a Time, Happily Ever After to bring you a list of our favorite Christmas Children’s Books! Spoiler: I love ALL the Christmas books! ha!
I collect books! Like ALL BOOKS! So, it’s no surprise that I also have a TON of Christmas books! I keep an eye out for them all year long and look forward to December 1st when I can pull them all out for the kids. And when you pack them away like that during the year, it’s like opening a great big present on December 1st!
Below is a list of 51 books I currently have in my Christmas Books basket. I had to pull a bunch from our shelves before hubs packed all our books, but I didn’t get them all. I’m super bummed that a few of our must-haves are currently packed in the garage somewhere.

For a few years in a row, I did a unit on Christmas Around the World the week before Christmas Break! One year, I made a bulletin board with the word: PEACE in many languages!
And I have a whole stack of books about Christmas in other countries, but you’ll never guess what? They’re PACKED! I think that may have to be a post for another day! These are the two I did keep out:
I also love to keep some activity books in there so the kids can make things or do things together. They love the seek&find type books!
I have a TON of books on the true meaning of Christmas; these are just a few of my favorites!
Do you have any Christmas books you love? As you can see, I love ALL OF THEM!

Oh, my so many new titles for me to explore and fall in love with. The books that are packed away will be really fun to rediscover next year. The Crippled Lamb was one I was going to include. Beautiful story. And I love the illustrations in Only a Star. Your photos are so pretty – great enticement!!
Thank you for playing along with me. For putting up with my fly by the seat of my pants blogging madness. You are an angel!
I love blogging by the seat of my pants! We’re a match made in heaven! ha!
