It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Last year I told you how I keep my kids from opening gifts early in our family's, Christmas Book Challenge. This year I want to share with you my top favorite Christmas Books.
Mortimer’s Christmas Manger- This is such a sweet and simple story about a mouse making room for Jesus. It is a convicting reminder to me every year that we read it, and I hope the same goes for my kids.
The Best Worst Christmas Pageant Ever- This book is hilarious and so evocative of how kids think and behave that it had all of my kids begging for more. Plus, the clear message of the birth of Christ and why he came was something I wasn’t expecting. Which, with the humor, automatically put it on my boys’ favorites list.
The Legend of St. Nicolas- I know this is a touchy subject, but we do Santa at our house. But that doesn’t keep me from reading this great book. It is a look at the life of young Saint Nicolas and how he came to reflect God’s generosity at Christmas time.
A Charlie Brown Christmas- There is something so sweet, simple, and poignant about this book. I hope it will always be a tradition in my home to read and watch together.
The Christmas Tree Parable- All of Liz Curtis Higgs Parable Books are little treasures. This one has an amazing picture of the gospel in it through the events on a Christmas Tree farm. Also, on each page is a Bible verse that speaks so eloquently to the spirit of Christmas.
