I reviewed Smudge, and the Book of Mistakes: A Christmas Story nearly a year ago. We read it through the Christmas season. Though this is a Christmas Story, it can be read all year long. This has more text than the other books I’ve listed but not so much text, in my opinion, that you’ll loose preschoolers but enough that even your older students will pick it up to read.
Last year during the Twelve Days of Christmas (the time from December 25 through and including January 6) we enjoyed this fun picture book: The Twelve Days of Christmas. We all, adults included, enjoyed the illustrations and finding the poor bird on each page. And when ever read this book we really can’t read it; we must sing it. I’m looking forward to pulling this one out right after Christmas dinner on Dec 25.
You’ll also want to check out my review of the book The First Christmas. This one is so fun to read aloud and I have enjoyed it so much with Supergirl. We will read it again on Christmas Eve when we come home after church.
