Best Christmas Books For Kids & Bookshelf Display

The Best Christmas Books for kids and the entire family that you can put on display and enjoy reading with your kids for seasons to come!  

Building The Collection

I started collecting picture books for each season and holiday 7 years ago and displaying them on bookshelves in our playroom.  It started as a way to get my baby / toddler into looking at books and readings, and has grown into a hobby.  You should see the storage totes in my garage!  I snag a couple of books during the post-holiday sales each year and publishers mail them to me for reviewing and recommending to my community.  I add to my collection gradually. A couple of years add up quickly and so my collection is quite large.

I also know many of you have a family tradition of celebrating the holidays with a book advent. Some people take the time to wrap 24 books, some use a reusable cloth bag, and others set them on the floor in an oversized basket. Maybe you’ve just started building a holiday book collection, or maybe you are perfectly content placing library holds in early November. However you celebrate the holidays at your house, I hope it involves books. Lots and lots of books.

Recommended Christmas Books

I have researched and reviewed all the books on my Amazon Christmas Book List which is now at 250 books!  There’s a book for every age and reading level in my list.  There are timeless classics like “Santa Mouse”  & “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” and new releases “The Perfect Tree” & “How to Catch a Reindeer”.

Here is a look at our 2022 Christmas Bookshelves in our playroom.  Our bookshelves are the Ikea Mosslanda 45 ¼” shelves.  I have linked several similar ones in my LTK Shop as well as some of the decor so you can transform a wall in your home into a festive book display.

Happy Reading!
