Christmas Books for Kids

A lovely idea I found doing the Facebook/Pinterests rounds suggests wrapping a book for every day of advent. Children can choose which one to unwrap and read with you at bedtime. These don’t have to be new books but if you’re after a few suggestions, check out some of our favourite Christmas books for kids.*
