My kids are <4 and these are our favorites.
  1. The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg
    Cb93911d 3b98 49d9 aa02 d1855c21771a
    A timeless classic that never loses its magic. This book holds a great sentimental value to me. I remember my dad reading it to me and I love sharing that tradition with my kids.
  2. How The Grinch Stole Christmas! By Dr Seuss
    61a1d78a 1401 4750 b1b5 da72ab297bab
    Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!
  3. Snow by Uri Shulevitz
    4e11ab2c 0bfa 4908 9ae4 b3644486befc
    Enchanting and whimsical. A little boy and his dog on the first snow of the season.
  4. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
    76dcaa88 c047 4472 b06d b085b84f19eb
    Our differences are what make us great. One day you'll go back home and outshine every one who tried to put you down. I will always get behind a story like that.
  5. The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats
    F8e0127a d78e 45ee 8138 a1561ad7988c
    One of my go-to baby shower gifts. Bright and elegantly told. The simple joys that all children can relate to.
  6. A Christmas Wish by Lori Evert
    723c7c48 ca33 47a1 9130 7eee91906efb
    A simple, yet stunning book. At its very heart the message is kindness.
  7. The Poky Little Puppy's First Christmas
    Ea5b871b 38a7 4885 a3cc a15ee9c934d6
    Just plain cute.
  8. The Night Before Christmas by Clement Moore
    E04223d3 b3a5 41b4 aae3 2e06aa4f23e5
    An absolute classic poem. Christmas Eve tradition.
  9. Bear Stays Up For Christmas by Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman
    9c3cc515 1096 4070 8320 946724d7cb35
    Hibernation means Bear misses Christmas. Not this year!
  10. Merry Christmas Mom and Dad by Mercer Mayer
    0e4e80bb e403 409f b4ca 20696adacfe7
    Another favorite from my childhood.
  11. Snowmen at Night by Carol Buehner
    0fa42646 cd16 4513 bdc7 db529e0fcf4c
    An updated, full of humor, version of Frosty. A rhyming tale of why snowmen really look so haggard in the morning! My son loves finding the hidden illustrations.
  12. Llama Llama Holiday Drama by Anna Dewdney
    63e7a598 ad0f 47c7 98f6 7f88472dfe16
    Waiting and waiting for the Big Special Day stresses little Llama Llama out. Leave it to Mama Llama to remind him what Christmas is really about: family ❤️
