The Best Christmas Books for Kids

Happy December! We are planning a little excitement for the kids into our holiday season this year by having fun with some of their favorite classic holiday books… come along!

Grinch-mas! Have a fun whimsical day in Grinchy mode. Perhaps your heart will grow three sizes…

Spend the day traveling to the North pole,
learning about trains, and sipping hot cocoa.

Help Charlie Brown find the meaning of Christmas. Maybe you’ll learn a thing or two about acting, decorating, and Baby Jesus.

  • Read  A Charlie Brown Christmas  by Charles Schultz
  • Let the kids decorate a small tree (or a sad little branch)
  • Here are some free Charlie Brown coloring sheets.
  • Watch A Charlie Brown Christmas with a big bowl of popcorn.

Think about what it felt like to be born in a barn. What types of animals and sounds might you have heard?

  •  Read Christmas in a Barn by Margaret Wise Brown
  • You can make a felt manger scene and keep it out for the rest of the christmas
  •  Try to recreate the manger scene out of fruit.

Here are a few other Christmas books you can read with your kids:
