Picture Books for Littles

The following are Christmas books LG has enjoyed for years now! She will turn 4 at the end of this month, so all of the books included below are especially great for toddlers and preschoolers!

1. That’s Not My Reindeer


2. Counting Christmas

One of my favorite ways to sneak in academic practice, especially during busy times like that holidays, is by choosing picture books that include an academic skill! Reading a counting book together is a great way to combine reading and counting practice!


3. A Very Merry Christmas


4. Merry Christmas, Daniel Tiger!


5. The Jesus Storybook Bible

We will definitely be reading the Christmas story a million times in our beloved Jesus Storybook Bible this December! In addition, we’ll be using our Wandering Wisemen Christmas Bible study to make sure our focus stays on Jesus in the midst of all these other fun picture books!
