Favorite Christmas Books in our Classroom

It's my favorite time of the year!!!!  


With so many fun activities, crafts, and books to read, I find myself wanting to do it ALL!  It can be hard to narrow it all down, but I've come up with my top 10 books to read aloud to my class.
Favorite Christmas Read Alouds,  www.JustTeachy.com

1. The Polar Express, by Chris Van Allsburg
I think I love this book so much because I remember reading it when I was younger.  The pictures are just so magical and really draw you into the story.

2. Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree, by Robert Barry
I was introduced to this book only a few years ago, but knew right away that I had to have it!  Such a cute story and the rhyming text makes it easy to read.

3. Santa Mouse, by Michael Brown
This cute mouse quickly became a favorite in my classroom and my own home!

4. Snowmen at Christmas, by Caralyn Buehner
We can't get enough of these silly snowmen and my class loves looking for the hidden pictures in each picture.

5. Pete the Cat Saves Christmas, by James Dean
Any book that comes with a free song to sing along with the book is a winner to me!  And of course my Kinders can't get enough Pete the Cat.

6. Mooseltoe, by Margie Palatini 
A funny story that will have your kids laughing!

7. Merry Christmas, Big Hungry Bear! by Don & Audrey Wood
What a brave and generous little mouse!

8. Bear Stays Up for Christmas, by Karma Wilson
A sweet story about Bear and his friends.

9. Llama Llama Holiday Drama, by Anna Dewdney
Who doesn't love Llama Llama!?!

10. It's Christmas!, by Jack Prelutsky
We love these fun, short poems!
