One of my favorite Christmas traditions is picking out a new children’s Christmas book each year. The past few years I’ve been obsessed with finding books that have a little something special to them. Pop-Up books, Scratch & Sniff, Twinkling Lights or anything that makes my kids and granddaughters extra excited to take a look inside.
These books are ones we own and love. We get so excited to get them out each year. I used to wrap them all up and open one each night, but life is sadly too crazy for us to do that anymore. Now we just grab a few whenever we have some free time and read them together. We hope you’ll find a new one to add to your collection.
The Sweet Smell of Christmas (Scented Storybook)
‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (AniMotion, so cool!)
One Snowy Night – A Touch & Feel Book
Olive, the Other Reindeer: Deluxe Edition
Santa’s Elves ABC – flaps of fun on every page and a giant fold-out surprise on the last page!
The Grinch’s Great Big Flap Book
Little Blue Truck’s Christmas – with Twinkle Lights
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Slide and Find
Bear’s Merry Christmas Pop-Up Book
S is for Santa. This is my newest book. No bells or whistles on this one. But I LOVE the illustrations and just had to have it!

We love Little Blue Truck's Christmas! (And the othe little blue truck books.)
Mortimer's Christmas Manger is one of our favorites!
The Jolly Christmas Postman is one of our favorites. It has little items in envelopes throughout the book that the postman delivers. Opening the items in the envelopes is so fun!
