Have you noticed yet that I have a deep love for illustrated children’s books? Whether we’re in a toy store, at the library, on Amazon or in a real bookstore, I am always drawn toward the picture book section. I love the sweet stories and am absolutely captured by the illustrations.
At Christmastime, we pull out our bins of ornaments and nutcrackers, wreaths and the nativity set and it always feels like a special surprise to rediscover our favorite Christmas books. I suppose we could keep them out all year, but it’s kind of fun to bring them out especially for this time of year.
If you are looking for a few new options to add to your Christmas book library, I’ve put together a list of my very favorite Christmas children’s books.
Some are classics, a few are brand new this year. Each one has a wintery feel and adorable illustrations (except one – The Best Christmas Pageant Ever – but it made the list because it is a read-aloud favorite!)
So in no particular order, here are 27 Favorite Christmas Picture Books:
Do you have a favorite for Christmas that isn’t on my list? I’d love to hear!
