Holiday Book List
Some of our best memories are centered around reading aloud and sharing books. Of course, Holidays are the perfect time to read a great book aloud together and build some more great memories! We always create a holiday book basket and spend time in the evenings with candles lit, the fireplace glowing, hot tea and chocolote near-by and enjoy our favorite holiday reads together!
Books, Short Stories & Biblical Accounts
The 24 Days Before Christmas by Madeline L’Engle; an Austen family advent story.
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by by Barbara Robinson. A beautiful reminder of what Christmas is all about.
The Gift of the Magi, by O.Henry- a sweet short story about sacrificial love.
Christmas Short Stories by Louisa May Alcott from the author of Little Women.
Home for Christmas, The Wild Christmas Reindeer, Who’s That Knocking on Christmas Eve; Jan Brett’s Christmas Treasury by Jan Brett. I’ve been a long time fan of Brett’s artwork. Simply lovely, with sweet stories to go with. You are never too old for a good kid’s book, eh?
Take Joy: the Tasha Tudor Christmas Book by Tasha Tudor. More lovely art-work and all things Christmas
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Read the classic
