Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year! In our home, we love to pour mugs of hot chocolate and snuggle up to read living books together by the lit Christmas tree. There something about those twinkling lights that spreads a calmness over everyone. It creates the perfect atmosphere for reading.

These picture books have been carefully selected for your family to enjoy throughout the Christmas season. Merry Christmas!
