My kids have found a love for reading over the past year and I couldn’t be more excited. We are always on the hunt for new books. One of my favorite things to do with my kids is read books about the upcoming holidays. Now they are getting older they like to curl up on the couch and read books to themselves. In this post you will find a big list of Christmas Books for your older kids.
There’s nothing quite like watching snow fall while reading a book about Christmas. Oh and I forgot one thing, doing this while drinking a cup of hot cocoa. My kids have been talking about Christmas since school started. I hope you find this list helpful. If you have younger kids you can find Christmas Books for younger kids here.
