Our Favourite Christmas Books For Children
Even though my children are teenagers, I can’t bear to throw away any of their Christmas books. They are stored in the trunk with the decorations and all the little Christmassy things they have made over the years. Many are very fragile now but they make us smile when we get out all the Christmas stuff. Here’s our pick of Christmas Books For Children. All would be good Christmas Eve Box fillers.

Why we love Christmas stories
Children’s books for Christmas have longevity because the stories are so memorable. Christmas is a truly special time filled with magic, wonder and messages of love, peace and hope. Books are brilliant Christmas presents because they fire children’s imaginations – and perhaps keep them off their phones and tablets for a little while.
