Wondering what to read to the kiddies this time of year? Or what to snuggle up with yourself?
I'll share some of my favorites and I'd love to hear yours too! I hope you'll speak up. I'd love to discover some new treasures this year.
Of course for Christians, nothing beats the Greatest Story of All.
Only A Star is by far my favorite picture book version of the nativity story. The artwork will stun you.
The story A Small Miracle is told entirely through pictures--no words.
I found it enchanting.
And of course I can't leave out my favorite Christmas book from my childhood.
Has anyone else read this? It tells the story of what happens when the littlest member of the Heavenly Host falls asleep in the field during the singing and is left behind on earth.
Here's another fun book.
It's like an advent calendar, with plenty of doors and tent flaps to open. Behind every door there's an interesting fact about life in ancient Bethlehem, like Kids played marbles with round walnuts or Doves are trained to carry the mail.
I'm sorry, but I just can't resist this baby board book.
Someone bought it for us the year Sam was born, and every year I CAN'T WAIT TO GET IT OUT AND HAVE A FIT OVER EACH PAGE!
Don't judge me.
Those toes! Those cheeks!
I can't resist this book either.
Or this one.
I read it every year.
And I love this one too.
Have you read A Redbird Christmas yet? Please do! I'd hate to count how many times I've read that thing--in every season! Think of the gardens I could have planted, the laundry I could have done...But it was so worth it.
Last but not least, one of my most favorite Christmas stories, A Christmas Carol.

It never gets old!
Bless us one and all!
Have a wonder-full Tuesday, y'all!
And before you go, don't be a Scrooge! Please tell me your favorites for kids or adults.
I need another excuse to run to the bookstore!
