Christmas Book Recommendations
Ho Ho Ho! Can you believe the Christmas season is already here? With Thanksgiving falling so late this year, it feels like we've been rushing to get into the Christmas spirit! Christmas is a holiday that people of all backgrounds can enjoy. Many children, who culturally do not celebrate Christmas, still participate in and learn about some of the Christmas-related traditions at school like decorating and exchanging gifts. During Christmas, families also spend time with one another and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. In the posts below, we are including religious Christmas books and also Christmas- themed books. These books are excellent for educating children about the Christian holiday and are for everyone to enjoy. Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates! Feel free to comment below with any of your favorite Christmas books that we missed!

God Gave Us Christmas is by Lisa Tawn Bergren. The illustrations in this book are so sweet! The little cubs ask mom about Santa and where to find him.
