Reading Christmas picture books aloud is a meaningful Christmas tradition in our home. Our family loves to snuggle up together and read Christmas picture books. Now, the tradition continues with grandchildren.
After all, who can resist a picture book, especially if it’s about Jesus’ birthday.
There is something magical about reading aloud together. It calms everyone down and bonds the reader with the listeners in a precious way.
We have collected Christmas picture books over the years and even now, I am adding to the collection for the grandchildren.
All of these Christmas picture books are inspirational and sweet.
The focus is on the magic of Christmas: a baby in the manger who didn’t belong here because He created the world He came to out of deep love for the people living in it.
Some of the books focus on kindness and hospitality–2 important aspects of Christmas for our family.
Why not start that tradition of reading inspirational Christmas picture books aloud at your house this year with these amazing Christmas picture books.
