25+ Christ-centered Christmas Books for Kids
I’m always on the hunt for Christmas books for kids that focus on the true meaning of the season. While I do enjoy a good book about gingerbread and flying reindeer, there are some days when I just want to read the kids a good book about Jesus and/or loving others.
These are the Christ-centered Christmas books I’ve found, in no particular order. Be sure to let me know if I’m missing some essential ones (that’s where the “plus” comes in the title!)!
