    I have such a huge stack of Christmas picture books that I’ve collected over the past 30 years. My youngest is now 12, and while she will still read through some of them each year, I so miss sitting and reading them aloud to the kids. I encourage mamas to collect these books and share them with their children. Such precious times that will fly by much more quickly than you could ever imagine! “The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree” and “The Story of Holly and Ivy” are two of my favorites! Another one I discovered more recently is “When Mother Was Eleven-Foot Four”. I tend toward tear-jerkers…:)

  2. I’m still at the stage where I wrap all our Christmas books for December 1st and we read and enjoy them all month long. Our kids are getting older so we’ll hang on to the tradition as long as we can! Two of our favorites are ‘Christmas Day in the Morning’ by Pearl Buck and ‘A Star for Christmas’ by Trisha Romance. Thanks for compiling this list! I see a few more that we can add to our collection.

    I have been reading Hidden Christmas by Tim Keller to my children, who are ages 10 and up. So far (three chapters into it), it has helped us all to be stirred afresh by the meaning of Christmas. Given my experience with Tim Keller’s writing/preaching, I am optimistic that it will continue to be a blessing to us as we set aside time each day to ponder the beauty of the Light appearing in the darkness.
