Ready for a list of Christmas books to read for advent that will knock your socks off?  Last year we started a new Christmas tradition – reading one Christmas book every night in December until December 25.  We all love doing this!  It’s wonderful bonding time and the kids are excited about picking through the pile of Christmas books under the tree to find the perfect one for that night.

Other ways to make this fun would be to wrap them up and let your child open one up each night so that it’s a surprise, or put a label on the cover of each book with a number on it representing the day it should be read.

On with the list!  Not all of these are Christ-focused, but those are interspersed with some fun and funny Christmas choices.

  • I love your list! I put several on hold at the library to pick up next week. We read all the time, but we’re started an informal habit of reading 1-2 Christmas books before bed every night. :-)
