One of the questions that was asked again and again while you were all looking at our home all dressed up for Christmas was about our advent book.

I wanted to share that title and some of our other favorite Christmas picks.

Our favorite advent book is “The 25 Days of Christmas-Family Readings, Scriptures, and Activities for the Advent Season”.

You can find it HERE.

You will not regret getting it.  Every year the kids get more and more out of it (the adults too).

Every Christmas Eve my children open up two gifts…their Christmas pajamas and a new book.

Everything else waits until Christmas morning.

It makes Christmas Eve simple and my favorite part about the season.

Here are some of our favorite books that the children have been given over the years.

The Crippled Lamb by Max Lucado

The Real Mother Goose Book of Christmas Carols 

The First Christmas by Carol Heyer

Memories of the Manger by Michelle Medlock Adams

The Visit by Mark Kimball Moulton

Ding Dong Merrily on High by Francesca Crespi (fun pop-up book of carols)

The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey by Susan Wojciechowski

The Night Before Christmas by Jan Brett (any book by Jan Brett is pure perfection)

What are some of your favorite Christmas books?
