I definitely have an opinion when it comes to Christmas books. Every year our children open one or more books each day as one of the many ways to celebrate Christmas daily in December. I don't even wrap the books, yet the children get to unwrap them. The children anticipate it every year. Think of it as an Advent activity.
Now it's time to share with you our ten favorite children's Christmas picture books.
