Read Holiday Books with the Kids (12 Days of Christmas Family Fun)

Posted By Jessica Fisher On December 1, 2011 @ 11:00 am In Christmas | 8 Comments

I have a little stash of Christmas books that I pack away with the decorations every January. We dig them out about this time every year.

Oh, sure, one or two renegade books floats around the house for the next year, but generally speaking, these are special occasion books; some are even leftovers from my own childhood.

I find that having stories for special occasions, like the music [4]or the cookies [5], is another way to bring consistency to our holidays. It brings comfort and ritual and something to enjoy and look forward to. And even some of the “bigger” kids will gather around to hear the stories. Love that!

Some of our favorite books to read include:

How the Grinch Stole Christmas [6] by Dr. Seuss

The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey [7] by Susan Wojciechowski

The Tale of Three Trees [8] by Angela Hunt

The Christmas Eve Ghost [9] by Shirley Hughes

Great Joy [10] by Kate DiCamillo

Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree [11] by Robert Barry

The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree: An Appalachian Story [12] by Gloria Houston

Song of the Stars: A Christmas Story [13] by Sally Lloyd-Jones

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (picture book edition) [14] by Barbara Robinson

12 Days of Christmas
