Christmas Books for Kids (A Large Collection from Usborne Books)

Christmas is still weeks away, but now that it's almost Thanksgiving, Christmas will be here before we know it.  I used to think there was plenty of time between Thanksgiving and Christmas but now it seems to pass by so quickly.  One day we are having Thanksgiving dinner with family and then I blink and we are waking up on Christmas morning.  Somewhere in all the busy, we need to take time to slow down and take a breath.  Reading books with our children or grandchildren is a great way to take a break while spending quality time with the kids.  This is a great time of year to start reading Christmas books with the children.  We like to read books that tell the good news of the Christmas story.  We like books about Santa, reindeer, and snowmen too, but we stress the true meaning of Christmas in our family which is the birth of Jesus.  Usborne Books and More offers a great selection of Christmas books for kids.  They have several books that tell the story of the nativity.  They also have books about Santa, reindeer, and snowmen.  The Nutcracker is a classic.  Usborne offers that book too. 

Check out this great collection and choose a few great Christmas books for your home library.  Your kids will treasure these books and their time with you forever.

This beautifully illustrated board book has lots of electric lights inside it for little children to discover. Mouse has no Christmas lights, so she sets out with her friend, Mole, to find some in the snowy forest. As the story unfolds and more friends join the adventure, there are more and more lights until Mouse finds a stunning Christmas tree at the end.

Please note: the lights in the book are LED lights which operate based on a sensor located on each page. The sensor may appear to be a light that does not work, but it is not. Additionally, the lights do not have a 'twinkling' effect - they do shine beautifully on each page. There also cannot be an obstruction of light over the sensor location. Open the book fully in a well-lit area.
