Christmas Book Advent Calendar with Activities

As the month of December begins today so does my obsession with reading children’s Christmas books. Yeap…seriously!

There’s something so special about sitting down with the kids under the Christmas tree and reading Christmas books together during the holidays.

If you take a peek at the Best Sellers in Christmas Books on Amazon or our 100 Christmas Books Every Child Should Read Before They Turn Age 10, the books below are the most popular with parents, teachers and most importantly kids.

I’ve taken each of these heartwarming Christmas books and added activity ideas to do along with them as you countdown to Christmas. From reindeer to Christmas tree, Christmas ornaments, and more, there are several Christmas Activity ideas to choose from to make each of the 12 stories special for your child.

I’ve also included the Christmas books read-alouds on youtube for each of these 12 stories.
