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 nice at Christmas. If you’d like to slow down and spend some time reading with your kiddos during the Christmas season, take a look at these 30 days of Christmas picture books! We hope you love them!
