Re: Favorite Christmas books?

The Polar Express
Classic ORIGINAL version of Twas Night Before Christmas (has some different wording)
Board Book Christmas I Spy (for baby)
The Snowman
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Olive the Other Reindeer


There are some really nice nativity storybooks, I have so many (and they are in our Christmas box right now) I can't say which is our favorite or remember exact titles, but obviously these are our most important Christmas books I try to find ones that are nicely worded and have beautiful illustrations - not cartoony ones.

The life and adventures of Santa Claus by Julie Lane (not the one by L Frank Baum)

Make sure to get one with all original artwork and non abridged. Beware, the first chapter will make you cry. I cry every year and I know what's coming.

on my phone, please forgive my autocorrect

This is a special picture book that always gets our family excited. It feels very magical to us.

Eta After having read the reviews, I guess I should disclose that I, too, am drawn to anything Jon Muth (the illustrator) gets involved in.

Definitely Twas the night before Christmas......and like pp said it has to be the original version! Also love Llama Llama Holiday Drama, Little People lift a flap book the Christmas one. We also have a book and I can't remember the title, about a tree who wants to be a Christmas Tree. All the animals in the forest decorate him at night because they love him. Seriously makes me cry every year lol! I'll have to go look for it now!
