50 of the Best Christmas Books for Kids

Is there anything better than a good Christmas book? This year, to countdown for Christmas, I am picking up 24 Christmas books. One book for each night for the kids to unwrap and read. Come Christmas Eve, they will have quite the collection of Christmas books!

I put together 50 of our favorite Christmas books for kids! You can’t go wrong with any of these. My favorite? The Sweet Smell of Christmas by Patricia M. Scarry. I had this book growing up and loved looking at the beautiful illustrations and smelling all of the Christmas scents. Last year, I found it at our local book store and had to grab a copy for the boys. It brought back so many memories!
