24 Favorite Christmas Books For Pre-School Aged ChildrenOne of the traditions I wanted to start this year was getting 24 Christmas themed books (I’d probably use the same ones each year), wrapping them, putting them under the tree, and letting the girls open one each night to be read at bedtime. This way, they’d have a gift to open every night in December. However, I think Ava is still too young to appreciate the fun of unwrapping a gift, so I’m putting it on the list of must-do’s for next year for sure. That will give me time to collect some Christmas books.  Here is the list of Christmas books I’m after so that I can start this Christmas tradition for next year. Some of the titles are classics and some are a lot newer. Click on the images to order directly from one of the most trusted online shopping websites, Amazon.com:
