I have two lovely Christmas picture books to share with you. And by share, today that means I get to give them to someone, too! Can you believe that the Christmas season is looming so close? I love this time of year so much. I love the emphasis on family, on Christ, and on service to others. I love the spirit of love that is shown more abundantly during this season. One thing that I have tried hard to do is to really focus on these important things more than the presents and the candy. One way we do that is through reading lots of Christmas picture books that are related to Christ and to service. the two books I am sharing today are about those two topics.

My kids have a thick Christmas book full of short stories that we love to read & look at each year. They received it as a gift from my grandmother when my oldest was little.

Oh, so many favorites. We just read The Sparkle Box for the first time and loved it. I think that is my current favorite.
I love Mortimer’s Christmas Manger, it’s such a cute story.
The First Christmas
Becky Lyons Borgia says
We have several favorites. I think our absolute favorite is called Baby in a Manger which is told from the animals’ (in the stable) point of view.
Thank you so much!! We are so excited to own them. We love Sparkle Box and I always love any of the first Christmas books.
