The Best Christmas Books for Your Littles.

Stories shape the heart as well as the mind, educate the imagination and soul as well as the brain. Our children need stories. Even we as parents need stories. As Sarah Mackenzie says in The Read-Aloud Family:

If you want a child to know the truth, tell him the truth. If you want a child to love the truth, tell him a story.

All toddlers benefit from the time a loving parent spends reading to him or her. They will quickly learn that books are fun, pretty, and colorful.

Here are a few books you may want to read with your child:

NATIVITY FLAB BOOK

A flap book to introduce little children to the story of baby Jesus. It features warm and friendly illustrations. Discover the magic of the very first Christmas by lifting the big flaps in this simple story of the Nativity.

A gorgeous Christmas addition to the popular Usborne Touchy-Feely series! Charming illustrations by Rachel Wells accompany a delightful, tactile retelling of the Christmas story, complete with fluffy donkeys, woolly sheep, a glittering angel and, of course, the baby Jesus, sleeping in his soft blanket. This appealing large-format book makes the perfect present for young children experiencing Christmas for the very first time.
