One of my favorite Christmas traditions is the overflowing basket of books that’s next to our Christmas tree. We began giving Jackson Christmas books on Christmas Eve his very first Christmas. I can still remember the first Christmas book we read to him (at just a few days old). I’m so glad I snapped this picture to capture this sweet memory.
We spend the days leading up to Christmas reading a book (or two or three) before bed each night. Jackson’s current favorite: Little Blue Truck’s Christmas.
And one of the best memories made this year? Jackson listening to me read my favorite Christmas book: The Polar Express.
So what Christmas books do you and your littles love?
Here’s a list of some of our favorite Christmas books:
Little Blue Truck’s Christmas By Alice Schertle
