I don’t know about you, but I love having a great assortment of holiday books to share with Emmie every season, which is why I rounded up the best holiday children’s books. Reading is so important and I’m a firm believer that holiday books often make the perfect gift.
A mix of new and second hand books are the way to go when buying good children’s books for your kids especially because kids are so rough on their books
There are so many benefits to buying gently used children’s books, and parents can find great bargains while providing their children with a variety of secondhand material that will keep them entertained for years. Books are always part of my toddler plans!
Here are my favorite children’s holiday books.
The Best Children’s Holiday Books
1. Construction Site on Christmas Night
The Construction Site series is a favorite in our house. It’s made our family walks super fun, and the Christmas edition is so well done. The Christmas edition is similar to Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site, but with more holiday themes, fun flaps and storytelling around what the equipment does for the holidays.
2. Little Blue Truck Christmas
We love the Little Blue Truck series, and it’s great because there’s a book for nearly every holiday. Little Blue Truck is spreading cheer by delivering Christmas trees to his animal friends. There’s fun ways to count with flip ups throughout the book, so it’s very engaging for kids.
3. The Berenstain Bears’ Night Before Christmas
Berenstain Bears is a classic series! I remember growing up with the series myself, so it’s fun to now share it with Emmie. I picked up The Night Before Christmas to share with Emmie as one of the used books we purchased.
4. Bear Stays Up for Christmas
Bear Stays Up for Christmas is a new series to us, and it’s so cute. Emmie really loves the part where they yell, “Get up!” It’s the first book we’ve purchased in the series, and I can’t wait to get more from SecondSale.com.
This book is about Bear’s friends and how they are determined to keep Bear awake for Christmas! So they wake Bear up and have him help them find a Christmas tree, bake cakes, hang up stockings, and sing Christmas songs. Bear stays up—by discovering that giving is one of the best Christmas presents of all!
5. Jacob’s Hanukkah Surprise
It’s important to me to share stories with Emmie about holidays that we don’t necessarily celebrate so she’s well-rounded. Jacob’s Hanukkah Surprise is a heart-warming story of a young boy who celebrates his birthday and Hanukkah together.
