Christmas Book List 2010

Here are the Christmas books to add to our list for 2010! Click here for last year's list.

How Santa Lost His Job by Stephen Krensky
How Santa Lost His JobLast year, Raegan shared How Santa Got His Job with you. The logical next step is how he lost it! This is a fun story about Santa's quirks and how he lost his job that one year.

Russell's Christmas MagicMy kids love Russell the Sheep, so when I saw Russell's Christmas Magic, I knew it would be a hit with them, too. Russell helps save Christmas!

The Something Wonderful: A Christmas StoryIn this story, the animals in THE stable get all busy and preoccupied with the upcoming something wonderful that was about to happen. They really busy themselves. A little lamb finally pulls them back to being kind and focusing on being ready in the right way. A great story for reminding us to prepare the right way for the something wonderful.

Santa's First Flight by Sam Beeson
This is a really fun story about the evolution of Santa. His first year, people were not so keen on the idea of a stranger showing up and sliding down their chimneys, but they warm up to the idea.

MOOSELTOE [ First edition ] by Margie Palatini
MOOSELTOE [ First edition ]
This is definitely a favorite story around here at Christmas time. A funny Christmas story.

Humphrey's First Christmas
This is one of those stories that brings tears to my eyes each time I read it. It is interesting for the kids so they stay engaged, but it also has a great moral about the way we should all be. Humphrey has a mighty change of heart. 

I Spy Christmas: A Book of Picture Riddles
These are great learning books.
