Best Christmas books for young children

Katherine J. Lew
 
Little Rabbit's Christmas
Little Rabbit's Christmas
"Harry Horse's books are always engaging and beautifully illustrated and this story is particularly relevant to young children.  They will love reading about little rabbit's adventure as he learns the importance of sharing and friendship."
Who Is Coming to Our House?
Who Is Coming to Our House?
"This story of the nativity seen through the eyes of the animals in the stable is not only gorgeous but also a simple retelling of the birth of Christ at a level that young children will understand and enjoy."
The Night Before Christmas
The Night Before Christmas
"Although this Christmas classic may be a bit long for some children, the adorable illustrations in this version are sure to hold their attention.  The jolliest, most engaging St. Nick I have ever seen!"
Richard Scarry's Christmas Mice (A First Little Golden Book)
Richard Scarry's Christmas Mice (A First Little Golden Book)
"The mischievous mice in this book are sure to delight any young child and the lighthearted story is a great introduction to the Christmas traditions children most enjoy ( I.e. Toys and candy!)."
Bear Stays Up for Christmas (The Bear Books)
Bear Stays Up for Christmas (The Bear Books)
"If you haven't read any of the books in Karma Wilson's bear series, now is the time to check one out!  The bear who can usually sleep the whole winter through decides to stay up to celebrate Christmas and his friends introduce him to many Christmas customs."
I Like Winter
I Like Winter
"This book was originally published in the 1950 but is still just as delightful to young children today.  The lilting rhyme of the text and the colorful, retro illustrations make for a fun, festive read."
Winter Story (Brambly Hedge)
Winter Story (Brambly Hedge)
"I cannot resist the meticulously detailed illustrations of Jill Barklem and this book is especially beautiful.  The story deals more with winter in general than Christmas specifically, but the snowy scenes of celebration definitely make it a holiday classic."
Welcome Winter (Little Scholastic)
Welcome Winter (Little Scholastic)
"This is another book that deals more with winter as a season than Christmas specifically, but if you live in a cold area it is a seasonally appropriate introduction to the weather."
The Polar Express
The Polar Express
"I enjoyed this book as a child and still find the story and illustrations magical.  The story moves fast enough to hold a small child's attention but older kids love it too!"
Merry Christmas Big Hungry Bear (Child's Play Library)
Merry Christmas Big Hungry Bear (Child's Play Library)
"This is a sequel to the classic children's book, "The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear" and is just as delightful as the original.  The mouse learns an important lesson about giving to those who are less fortunate."
The Story of the Nutcracker Ballet (Pictureback(R))
The Story of the Nutcracker Ballet (Pictureback(R))
"A simple retelling of the story behind the Nutcracker Ballet that will appeal to preschoolers and older children alike.  Great to read before going to see a performance of the ballet."
White Christmas
White Christmas
"This is one of a series of small, richly illustrated Christmas carol books. The small size is particularly appealing to young children and the cute animals are engaging."
