My Favorite Christmas Read Aloud Books


Tomorrow starts the 24 day countdown to Christmas!  Last year I created the Play Your Way to Christmas book, and my family is excited to participate in all the sensory and play activities again.  Last year, I loved seeing teachers and families participating.  You can get your copy here!

One of the things I loved about creating this was revisiting some of our favorite Christmas stories.  If you don't have these stories at home, don't worry!  I have read alouds posted below for many of the stories.  I am also including the affiliate links if you want to purchase these Christmas books for your home. 

The First Christmas

The Christmas Baby board book

If the book above is a little too long, this board book is a great option!

The Gingerbread Man

Run, run as fast as you can!

Dream Snow

You know I LOVE Eric Carle!  This book is great because it has these amazing transparent pages.  Pairs wonderfully with Day 5-9 activities in the Play Your Way to Christmas book.

The Littlest Elf

This is a precious book about an elf who seems to be too small for most of the jobs in the North Pole.  This story reminds us that everyone can do SOMETHING.

The Polar Express

There is just something about this book's beautiful illustrations!  This is a long book, so if you are reading this with younger children you can tell them a condensed version.

Watch me read the full version here!

Five Busy Elves

Lots of cute rhyming practice in this book!

And last, but not least....

The Night Before Christmas

Yes, this was my book as a kid!  Ever time I crack open that metallic, golden spine I am instantly snuggled up in bed with my little sister.  We could always swear we heard jingle bells on Christmas Eve night!

Watch me read this here!
