Some of my favorite gifts to give to children are books. Toys and stuffed animals may come and go but sharing stories is an essential part of human history. What a better way to share the holidays with the children in your life than to take the time to read some books together? So, instead of listing all the gizmos and gadgets that kids are asking for this year, I put together a list of some of my favorite children’s Christmas stories.
This is one of my absolute favorite children’s books of all time. It tells the story of Christmas Eve, as Santa sees it, in a fun comic-strip style drawn by the author-artist who gave us The Snowman.
Cute, adorable pigs at Christmas time? I think that’s all the introduction that this story needs.
Moore’s famous poem has been a holiday classic ever since he wrote it in 1822. This edition with Wilcox Smith’s illustrations, was first published in 1912, and is considered by many to be the definitive version of the story.
For Small Home Big Start’s very first giveaway, one lucky winner will receive three children’s Christmas stories packaged up in a cute reusable handmade holiday book bag, ready to share with a child.
