5 Christmas Book Suggestions for Little Readers

My family celebrates Christmas.  I have fond memories of sharing Christmas stories on Christmas Eve with my parents and my siblings.  I’m so excited that it is MY turn to start these memories…traditions…with my family.  With some of the books, I have shared some related activities.

Here are my Christmas book suggestions…

Consider these for car rides/plane flights…nightly or weekly traditions…Christmas Eve traditions…stocking stuffers…

Christmas Book Suggestions

5.  That’s Not My Santa

I love a good touchy feely book!  This is a book in the line of books I find myself ALWAYS recommending!

4.  Elmo’s Merry Christmas

I don’t know about yours, but my little guy LOVES Sesame Street.  He will be so interested and engaged in this lift the flap book.

3.  Christmas In The Manger

A great way to introduce little readers to reason for the season.  I look forward to sharing this book with my little man 🙂

2.  How the Grinch Stole Christmas

A loved story!  You can start a tradition with this book!  Read the book, talk about the pictures, etc.  Later, make a movie night with your family and watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas while snacking on some Grinch Popcorn like this amazing idea from Two Sister Crafting

 

1.  The Polar Express

A CLASSIC!  While this might be too involved with not enough interaction for our little ones (under 2), I still plan starting this book as part of a Christmas with my little family this year.  Remember there are multiple ways to “read” with little ones.  You don’t have to read the actual text…paraphrase and make up your own words, just talk about the pictures, etc.  You can later make a movie night with this adorable movie!  Activity-mom.com has some fun activity suggestions!
