Today on What to Read Wednesday
I'm sharing some of our favorite Christmas Picture Books. The Christmas Read Alouds I mentioned last week are favorites too, but besides those, here are some christmas picture books we love to enjoy during quiet time or as a family during the holiday season. Click on the book cover to see a preview or purchase the book on Amazon.
The First Christmas by Carol Heyer – the same lady who wrote Humphrey's First Christmas, that we love so much. The illustrations feel real and draw you in to the story.
The Quiltmaker's Gift by Jeff Brumbeau – A quiltmaker helps a selfish king learn that giving is the true secret to happiness. Beautiful and details illustrations.
Snowmen at Christmas by Caralyn Bueheur – Ever wondered how snowmen celebrate Chirstmas? This story reveals in happy, jolly detail what happens Christmas Eve while you are sleeping.
Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Bueheur – Delightful! Fanciful! and unique artistry that includes hidden pictures on almost every page.
