Happy December everyone!
One of my favorite Christmastime childhood memories is pulling out the box of Christmas books that were stored with the rest of the Christmas decorations. The books somehow seemed more magical because they were Christmas themed, and we only saw them once a year, and they smelled like the Christmas candles that were stored with them.
Today, I want to share our Christmas book list with you as we continue our tradition of reading together. We are reading a different Christmas picture book every day leading up to Christmas, plus we will be reading a few chapter books during the month of December. I’ve gathered ideas for this list from several resources including:
- My childhood memories
- Books we’ve stumbled upon at libraries and thrift stores
- My friend, J.H. from Tennessee
- My friend, L.R. from Returning To Paradise
- Rainbow Resource Holiday Reading List
- Read Aloud Revival Books for December
- Pam Barnhill Christmas Celebration
- Five in a Row
So pull up a comfy chair, grab a nice warm holiday beverage, and check out some of these books at your local library! Here’s what we’re reading:
Picture books that are also illustrated Christmas carols:

This first week of December we are doing a unit study of The Nutcracker which will conclude with a field trip to see the local ballet production. Here are the books for this week.
I’ve also got two advent books that we may, or may not get to this year…
🎄Happy Christmas reading everyone!
