Classic Christmas Books

Nov 27, 2017

There are not many activities that I love more than reading on the couch by the fire with a good book and a warm blanket. To get into the Christmas spirit here are classic Christmas books to add to your seasonal reading list.

Just a quick note: Instead of shopping at amazon.com these links are directed towards smile.amazon.com instead which donates 0.5% of your purchase towards a charity of your choice! It’s an easy way to give back this holiday season without spending a cent more.

The Night Before Christmas

Capture the thrill of a traditional Christmas with Clement C. Moore’s treasured seasonal rhyme. Brought to life with the warm and playful artwork of Henry Fisher, this magical story is full of character and humor and will delight children new to the story as well as parents who know it from their own childhood.

Little Women

Grown-up Meg, tomboyish Jo, timid Beth, and precocious Amy. The four March sisters couldn’t be more different. But with their father away at war, and their mother working to support the family, they have to rely on one another. Whether they’re putting on a play, forming a secret society, or celebrating Christmas, there’s one thing they can’t help wondering: Will Father return home safely?

The Last Straw

Christmas is supposed to be a season of love, warm feelings, and happy hearts. But with the children’s constant bickering, pretty packages and a sweet-smelling tree don’t come close to filling the McDonald home with the true spirit of the first Christmas. Then Mom remembers an old tradition of building a soft bed for Baby Jesus one straw at a time. Each time someone secretly does something nice for another family member, he or she gets to add a single straw to the manger.

A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an old miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come.

After their visits, Scrooge is transformed into a kinder, gentler man.

The Polar Express

A young boy, lying awake one Christmas Eve, is welcomed aboard a magical trip to the North Pole . . .

Through dark forests, over tall mountains, and across a desert of ice, the Polar Express makes its way to the city atop the world, where the boy will make his Christmas wish.

The Christmas Box

Richard finds The Christmas Box in the dusty attic of the home of an elderly lady whom he and his family have come to live with. Inside the box are several letters that the owner had written to a deceased loved one. Through the discovery of this box and the letters within, Richard discovers the true meaning of Christmas.

 

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

Laughs abound in this bestselling Christmas classic by Barbara Robinson! The Best Christmas Pageant Ever follows the outrageous shenanigans of the Herdman siblings, or “the worst kids in the history of the world.” The siblings take over the annual Christmas pageant in a hilarious yet heartwarming tale involving the Three Wise Men, a ham, scared shepherds, and six rowdy kids.

    I think that everything said made a great deal of sense.But, consider this, suppose you added a little information? I ain’t suggestingyour information isn’t solid, but what if you added something that makes peopledesire more? I mean آخر النتائج.. بايدن على أعتاب البيت الأبيض – صحيفة سودان بلا حدود الإلكترونية is a little boring.You might look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they write article titles to grab viewers interested.You might add a video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about whatyou’ve written. In my opinion, it might make your blog a little bit more interesting.
