December 13th: Story Time

One of my favorite things to do with Cody, even when it's not Christmastime, is reading. But during the month of December, we pull out all the Christmas books and read at least one before going to bed. I wanted to share some of our favorite ones here. Most of them tell the Christmas story in one way or another, making them a great teaching tool. They are all beautifully illustrated, telling the story in pictures as well as words. A couple of the books I listed are just plain fun! From our family to yours....happy reading!

A Shepherd's Gift by Mary Calhoun

Born in Bethlehem (a lift-the-flap book)

The First Christmas by Carol Heyer

The Crippled Lamb by Max Lucado (with Jenna, Andrea, and Sara Lucado)

Bear Stays Up for Christmas by Karma Wilson

A Charlie Brown Christmas by Charles M. Schulz
