Christmas is a special time of year that calls for special kinds of books.  I have too many book recommendations for this season to be able to write individual reviews for them, so I have created a list of some of my favorite Christmas and wintertime books to read.  Most of these books are picture books, which makes them great read-alouds.  Some of these books are favorites in my family, but others are ones that I recently discovered.  Of course, above all of these books, I recommend reading Luke 2:1-20.  I hope that you will enjoy reading these books during the Christmas and winter season.  Merry Christmas!
