With old and new picture books to choose from, we’ve gathered 25 wonderful Children’s Christmas books to read for the holidays. It’s a fantastic collection of both secular and Christian themed Christmas picture books to enjoy this year.
Last year I shared 25 of our most Favorite Christmas Picture Books. This year, I wasn’t sure I could find nearly as many great children’s Christmas books to make a new list. But I set out to try anyway, and it was actually easier than I thought!
Turns out, there are a lot of really wonderful children’s Christmas books out there (and I’m even very picky)!
On this list you will find a mix of brand new 2019 Christmas picture books and older favorites too. There are secular holiday stories as well as Christian Christmas stories on this list – something for everyone celebrating Christmas. Every book has beautiful illustrations, excellent writing, and all that Christmas magic.
And if you aren’t doing 25 day Picture Book Advent with your kids, it’s not too late to find some on this list at the library or bookstore and do a 12 Days of Christmas Books activity with your kids. Just wrap up 12 favorites and unwrap one each day from the 14th to the 25th (or the 13th to the 24th).
You’d be surprised how much more exciting reading time becomes when you get to open a wrapped book from under the tree every day!
