We have a lot of traditions in our house when it comes to Christmas. First, we have always gotten our kids new Christmas pajamas that they opened up on Christmas Eve; second, we got a board game for the kids that we played together that night; and third, we got take-out and watched a funny Christmas movie. My personal favorite is Elf! One tradition that I wish I would have started was getting my kids Christmas books each year. How cool would it have been to have a whole box of great Christmas books that they could one day share with their families?

Baby and Toddler Kids Christmas Books
One thing I made sure to do with my kids when they were a baby was read to them. I love books (duh…I have a book review site!), and I thought if I read to them when they were young, that they would grow up to love books too. And they do! Most of the time. They are teenagers now and being told to read something specific in school isn’t always their favorite, but they still read for pleasure too. Here are some great kids Christmas books for baby’s and toddlers.

Christmas Books for Young Kids
There are so many books for young kids that are fantastic for Christmas time. My son was obsessed with the Polar Express when he was four years old. Literally obsessed. We read the book, listened to the soundtrack, and watched the movie constantly. So much so, we had to buy a second movie because we wore out the first DVD. I didn’t even know that was possible. Besides Polar Express, here are some other fantastic books to pick up.
