Five Classic Christmas Picture Books You Must Read With the Kids

Leah Courtney
I've long collected Christmas picture books. I love to get them out each year and read them over and over again with the kids. It's a great tradition. And when the kids were little, we especially looked forward to pulling out the Christmas books and putting them under the tree where we would sit and read them throughout the season.

Of all the Christmas picture books you could choose to add to your collection, how do you know which ones to pick? Here are five great Christmas picture books you don't want to miss adding to your collection.

Classic picture books for kids- Rudolph


This classic is often a television special during the Christmas season. But it's also a great book to read with the kids.

The Night Before Christmas


Classic picture books for kids- Night Before Christmas
The classic poem has been interpreted in a variety of children's books, but my favorite is the one illustrated by Jan Brett.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas


Classic picture books for kids- the Grinch


This is another classic that you can often find on television during the Christmas season. But the classic Dr. Suess book is one you can't miss.

The Little Drummer Boy

This classic Christmas story has been made into a beautifully illustrated picture book by Ezra Jack Keats.

The Legend of the Candy Cane


Classic picture books for kids- The Legend of the Candy Cane


When I was really little, my grandmother used to tell me about the candy cane each Christmas. She would point out the symbolism of the colors and shape and how this candy pointed the way to the real meaning of Christmas. I never knew that the story she told was an actual book until I was much older and found this book.

  2. We love the Legend of the Candy Cane, the Grinch, and the Night Before Christmas. I try to mix in old favorite and new stories each year.
