Elf-Approved: Christmas Books Kids Will Love

We have a tradition where every year, we buy a new book “from Santa.” These Christmas books for kids are treasured, and we reread them every year.

In fact, I have the collection of kids’ Christmas books my parents gave me as I was growing up, and I love to dig through them and reread them even now.

If you have older kids, I put together a list of great Christmas books for teens and tweens, but if you have younger kids, whether you need Christmas board books or early reader Christmas chapter books, I have our favorites for those and everything in between.

Start a new tradition where you give a new Christmas book every year. It’s so much fun and a great way to develop a love of reading.

There are some books you grew up reading, some that your parents grew up reading, and they are just as good now as they were then. These classic Christmas books for kids are ones that definitely belong in your collection.
