Boy and baby sister reading a book together.image shared by becky

On the ABCJesusLovesMe Facebook Group, Helen shared an idea that she found on Pinterest to wrap and read one book per day as a countdown to Christmas or for Advent.  I love the idea!

There is a plethora of wonderful children’s books focusing on Christmas so I assumed that finding 25 quality books would be a cinch.  But in my search, I found most of the lists contained books that focused on the commercial side of the holiday.  So with the help of some precious ladies in our group, I compiled a list that intermixes fun and teaching the true meaning of Christmas.

Christ-focused Christmas Books

For late preschool and elementary-aged children, follow the story of three trees and discover the significance of Christ's life and sacrifice on the cross.
