Some of my favorite Christmas storybooks

If you are like me, some of your favorite Christmas traditions revolve around reading.

We always read an advent devotion together as a family. This year we are trying out Ann Voskamp’s Unwrapping the Greatest Gift, which has a Jesse tree theme. It is a beautiful book and I can’t wait to dig into it. I’ll let you know how the kids respond.

Christmas stories

In years past, we read My Very First Christmas: Christmas stories for the very young which you can now get used for a buck on Amazon. I loved the simple telling of the Gospel accounts as well as the stories from different countries and traditions around the world.

This year I am looking forward to a little Christmas reading gift to myself.

My friend, Tara of I Might Need a Nap, has been published in an anthology of Christmas short stories. There are 31 short entries from different authors ranging from funny to sweet to poetic.

If this weren’t tempting enough, today you can get A Cup of Christmas for your Kindle free by clicking here!

Don’t worry if you miss the boat, though. Proceeds from the later sales go to benefit a children’s literacy charity.

So these are some of my favorite reads (because you know no matter how proud I am of them, I just can’t bring myself to read the devotions I write. Funny, huh?)

I’d love it if you’d share your favorite Christmas reading in the comments below!
