It was requested I list my favorite Christmas books. I decided to do something a little different and read 25 NEW to me Christmas books and challenge you to do the same.
Read a holiday book that you do not remember ever reading.
Rate it with stars 1-5 5 being the BEST.
I love Tomie de Paola and I think any holiday book written by him will get a 5 star from me.
4. Santa’s Toy Shop When was the last time you read a Little Golden Book with your family? Pick one up and read together today. Each book title when clicked will either bring you to our Biblionix page or Miss Sherry’s Goodreads.
A wonderful little Christmas story for the young to read to the old. “Christmas! Such a wonderful fuss!”
Switch up your dinner plans. Fix pasta and celebrate an Italian Christmas. Buon Natale. Christmas is a wonderful time to learn about different cultures and traditions.
7. Great Joy
Kate DiCamillo is one of my favorite authors of all time. This book is holiday magic.
Many of the books on this list are written by some of my favorite children’s authors. Patricia Polacco is excellent. This is a beautiful family read aloud.
My heart is broken. This book is incredibly sad, but an excellent holiday read to remind us of all the wonderful things we have this holiday. Encourage your children to give. Remember the Donnelly Public Library is a drop off spot for #CramTheVan bring in toys and coats to give away.
I love that Santa’s joy comes from the children. The letters he receives are what brings him his HO! Ho! HO!
I love when kids hear things and think it means something different. “Olive, the other reindeer,” is a beautiful book from a child’s heart.
Your children have likely heard this song. I love reading Christmas songs because it gives children the confidence to read independently and they expand their vocabulary while they are at.
WHOA! WHAT??? Repeating the same book?
The Library has several copies of this book with different illustrators. Repetition is really important for young readers. I encourage you to read the same book. Yes, over and over and over again.
Great family story. Having a 4 year old sibling is not the easiest thing in the world. This is a story of a little four year old redeeming himself.
I listened to this one on the Idaho Digital Consortium, Libby. Encourage your kids to listen to a book this holiday.
This is a delightfully funny little Christmas book. Santa goes to visit Doc Holiday for what ails him.
17. Santa Mouse
This little book will make you add a little piece of cheese to the cookie tray on Christmas Eve. You won’t want to forget the little mouse.
18. Christmas Mice
It’s Christmas time and the four cheerful mice merrily hang stockings, string popcorn, wrap presents, and sing carols. great little read aloud.
19. Thank You, Santa

20. The Nutcracker
Beautiful illustrations that escort you in to the magic of this story.
You may have a child that LOVES Dogman, this is your holiday book. Simple very easy read.
Blimey! This was a great book! Make sure matey that you check out the glossary in the back of the book. Thar is surely something for you to learn thar. Merry Christmas me buckos, an’ a happy New Yaarghhhhhhhh!
Short little book great for the early reader when you are about to build a gingerbread house this season.
Switch up your Gingerbread building this year and try and build some inside furniture as well.
“But we didn’t even open the presents,” said Pooh
“Silly old Bear, ” Christopher Robin said, “Spending time with friends is the best present of all.”
A great reminder. Slow down and don’t get so consumed. Remember each other this holiday season.
