favorite christmas/holiday children books

There are so many magic moments to be had during the Holiday Season…so many of those are made snuggled up with our favorite books.  They’ve inspired memorable holidays together.

While you’re perusing the list, think of your favorites and be sure to leave them in the comments below.  *** My friend Ivana is looking for a really good Christmas book without Santa (yes, without) 🙂  We have a couple nativity books…but they aren’t my favs…I’ve seen some good ones, but I’d really luv to hear your suggestions.  And so would Ivana :).
