There are so many fun Christmas books for toddlers at this time of year! I’ve rounded up my tot’s favorites:
The Night Before Christmas: A Bedtime Shadow Book by Clement C. Moore, Illustrations by Martha Day Zschock
The classic tale presented in a unique way! This The Night Before Christmas is a shadow book, which means you need to be tucked up in bed with a flashlight. Each illustration is designed for you to shine a flashlight through creating a shadow on the bedroom wall. It’s supposed to be for children between 4 and 9 but my tot loves it and I love trying to focus the light right while the peanut gallery heckles :D. In my family, it’s a top winner!
Christmas: Felt Play by Image That Group Ltd
Such a fun and interactive book! My tot and I love settling down and getting out the 20 felt play pieces and arranging them in the 5 Christmas play scenes. A very loose story flows throughout but the funs the felts!
The Christmas Story by Igloo Books Ltd
The Christian story of the birth of the baby Jesus with 8 magical sounds. We picked this book up at the beginning of the month and tot still loves pressing though all the sounds…sometimes mummy doesn’t read fast enough.
The Story Orchestra: The Nutcracker Illustrated by Jessica Courtney-Tickle
Tot got this book last Christmas. It has been a favorite all year round. but it comes into its own on since the start of December. On each page, you need to find the musical note symbol. When pressed them you can hear Tchaikovsky’s music following with the classic tale of the Nutcracker. A must-have book if you don’t have it yet.
