Unpacking Christmas: Books

Unpacking Christmas Books for the Heart

A thoughtful, well illustrated book is a gift that continues to resonate long after “the end” is read. Last night we read a few Christmas books before bedtime and one happened to be a scratch and sniff book by Joan Walsh Anglund that I received as a young girl over 25 Christmas’ ago.  The real surprise…you can still scratch and sniff the pepper-minty pie, pepperoni pizza, and beautiful fir tree that Mary and Willie prepare for their Christmas party guests!

Below is a listing for the youngest to the oldest of readers to enjoy within your home this Christmas. I hope you experience the true meaning of Christmas in a fresh way this year and every one thereafter as you unpack these Christmas books in the years to come.

A special note to my readers without little children in this season of life, the last five books are for you. Enjoy!

  1. Great list of books! One of my favorites on the list is The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. I love reading that to my 3rd graders every year, especially since I get to read the real Christmas story as I read this book to them. We follow it up with the movie (double dose!)

    • Hey Julie! Yes, love that one. I was looking for the movie at the library but didn’t see it yesterday. Checking some other stores (hopefully) today. Merry Christmas and thanks for reading and commenting!

      • We will be watching it the week of the 15th. If you want me to, I can bring it to Church Sunday and you can watch it sometime this week and I’ll get if from you next Sunday.
