Christmas books for kids - Reading List

Christmas books for kids

Tuesday, December 24, 2013

Last week I shared the top Christmas books my kids are enjoying this year. And this week I wanted to share some of the other books that my friends are enjoying with their kids this Christmas.

It always warms my heart to know that other moms and dads are sitting with their kids on a regular (hopefully daily) basis and reading to them. The studies that prove how beneficial this practice is are countless. But for me and my mommy friends, we see these as opportunities to snuggle close to our babies, even when they are much too big for such labels.

So here is a list of some favorites for our kids, in no particular order.
