Christmas Books

Each year for Christmas, the children receive a Christmas-themed book. As our older children have grown, we have moved away from giving them picture books. Some of the "chapter books" that they have received and liked are:

The Birds' Christmas Carol by Kate Douglas Wiggin
We have a different copy of this book.

Christmas by Alice Dalgliesh (out-of-print)

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, illustrated by Arthur Rackham

The Family Under the Bridge by Natalie Savage Carlson, illustrated by Garth Williams

The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry

The Lion in the Box: A Christmas Story by Marguerite de Angeli

Maggie Rose, Her Birthday Christmas by Ruth Sawyer (out-of-print)

The Story of the Other Wise Man by Henry Van Dyke

Take Joy! The Tasha Tudor Christmas Book by Tasha Tudor

A Tree for Peter by Kate Seredy

The Trees Kneel at Christmas by Maud Hart Lovelace

The Year of the Christmas Dragon by Ruth Sawyer


  1. Yay, Christine! I love your book lists. That Family u. the Bridge keeps popping up. It caught my eye that it's illustrated by the same fellow that did the Little House books. Might have to check that one out. =)

  2. I am happy to hear that you like the book lists. All of my children who have read The Family Under the Bridge like it. I have not tried it as a read aloud yet, but hope to do so soon.

  3. I always enjoy your booklists too, Christine. Some of them we already enjoy like The Family Under the Bridge and A Tree for Peter (so good), but there are some others I'll have to look for.

  4. Thank you, Kimberlee. I hope that you find the books for which you are looking. I know that it goes without saying, but you might want to check your local library. Our library system has most of these titles.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I hope that you have a wonderful day! God bless you!
