Favorite Family Christmas Books

Don't you just love Christmas books? I do! The only problem is, there are so many holiday books out there that are just so so. Here is a list of our family's favorite Christmas books.

Shoemaker Martin 
This is the story of Martin.  Martin dreams that he hears Jesus saying he will come to see Martin the next day. Martin looks out for the important visitor, but instead finds himself helping and befriending a succession of ordinary folk.

The Jolly Christmas Postman
This is hands down my kids favorite book this year! I read it as a kid and gave it to them this year.
This fun book is about a Jolly postman delivering letters. Each page is full of real letters, gifts and games. 

Why Christmas Trees Aren't Perfect
"They say that if you creep into an evergreen forest late at night you can hear the trees talking. If you listen very carefully to the whisper of the wind, you can hear the older pines telling the younger ones why they will never be perfect."

The Polar Express
I doubt I need to elaborate on this? 

How The Grinch Stole Christmas
Another great classic.

Bad Kitty Christmas
Brody thinks this is so funny.
"Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the city, not a creature was stirring...Except for BAD KITTY."
A greedy Bad Kitty didn't get all the presents she wanted for Christmas, but after she goes on a Christmas caper across town and through multiple alphabets, she makes a new friend, finds an old friend, and learns the true meaning of Christmas.

Mr. Finnegan's Giving Chest
Mr. Finnegan (Dick Van Dyke) is no ordinary toy maker. His providential meeting with Maggie, a resentful girl who doesn't believe in the magic of Christmas, is the beginning of a series of miracles that will change her heart forever. 

The Sweet Smell of Christmas
Travis loved this book as a kid and now our kids are crazy about it too. Plus it's scratch and sniff, what's cooler than that?
Celebrate the sights and smells of Christmas in this classic scratch-and sniff book. Join Little Bear as he prepares for the holidays, all the while giving readers a chance to smell six wonderful scents including apple pie, Christmas tree, hot chocolate, and more!

Max's Christmas
Max has plans to stay up late to see Santa Claus, but his big sister, Ruby, wont let him. “Why?” asks Max. To which Ruby replies everyone’s most despised answer: “BECAUSE!” So Max takes matters into his own hands and sneaks into the living room to wait for Santa on his own. Will Santa still show up? What will he say if he sees Max up waiting for him?

  1. Have you ever read, "The best Christmas Pageant ever"? It's my favorite Christmas book since childhood. (Just thought I'd share if you never read it. :-)


Thank you for commenting! I read each and every comment.
