Our favorite Christmas picture books!

Tuesday, October 27, 2020

Reading Christmas picture books is one of the very sweetest parts of the Advent season in our family! I like to buy a few new Christmas books and pull out our older ones and wrap each one. Each morning in December, our children open a Christmas book to read as a family. This list includes books beloved by our family that are reverent, joy-filled, and inspiring. Use this list as a guide to fill your library with beautiful Christmas books! We recommend BetterWorldBooks.com for great prices on gently used books.
