30 Days of Christmas Picture Books
Most homeschooling families love books! Many of us have bookshelves full of books, stacks of books by the bed, books on the coffee table, and even books in the car (in case you get stuck in traffic and need something to do to stay occupied!). We keep books everywhere, and we read them often. While reading is fun any time of year, it can be especially cozy at Christmas.
If you’d like to slow down and spend some quality time reading with your kiddos during the Christmas season, take a look at these 30 days of Christmas picture books!
The books on this list are perfect to share with young children, but I think that kids (and adults) of all ages will find them to be a magical and engaging addition to the Christmas season. I hope you love them!
Whether you’ve read every book on the list or if they’re all new to you, this printable list includes 30 favorite picture books to enjoy with your family during the Christmas season!
Your local public library probably has many of them. Or if there are some you want to buy to keep, you can check out our list (at the bottom of this article) and click the links on each title to buy them on Amazon.
