There are so many amazing Christmas books out there, this is just a small collection of my favorites for my family and preschoolers. Obviously, if you teach at a public preschool, you need to be sensitive to the childrens families beliefs and maybe ask if it’s ok to read the books with a religious theme.
As part of our 25 Days of Christ, this is another great idea for keeping Christ in Christmas. Finding books about Jesus’ birth and reading them to your little ones is the perfect thing to bring the spirit of Christmas into your home and open a dialogue with your child about the birth of Christ.
This is a long list (please scroll to the bottom to see the whole list), so I’m just going to highlight my favorites:
Absolutely beautiful, poignant pictures accompany the scriptural telling of the Saviors birth. I read these same scriptures to my children every christmas, how nice it will be to have them all together with pictures to go with them. This a brilliant artist whose paintings seem to come to life. One can feel the emotions on Mary and Joseph’s faces and the pictures of the Christ Child are fantastic.
beneath the star’s light…
…a Little One came for the world.
“Who is coming to our house?
Someone, someone,” says Mouse.
As Pig makes room, Lamb cleans up, Goose stacks the hay, and Duck lines the crib with eiderdown, Mary and Joseph are on their way by donkey. All the animals welcome the baby Jesus to their home.
I hope you get out your Christmas books and read with your children this holiday season! Merry Christmas!
