10 Better Than Christmas Themed Books To GIve This Christmas To Kids - better ways to do christmas this year

When Christmas rolls around we often think that it is nothing but Christmas books that we should be buying for our kids. Whilst a few Christmas themed books are great, a better way of doing books at Christmas is to choose those that your kids will be interested in all year round! Books that you feel give you substance in your home.

Books here at our house are a HUGE part of our daily life and we just love going into an imaginative world a good writer will take you to! Here are just 10 books I love that would be great for gifts this year for any young budding reader! – don’t forget to checkout A BETTER WAY TO DO A BOOK ADVENT CALENDAR THIS CHRISTMAS too (coming this week)

  • I love this collection. The illustrations are amazing and I bet these wonderful stories will jump start imagination!

  • What a great list of books! I’m always on the lookout for a good picture book for my two toddlers.

  • YES! I starting loathing Christmas theme books this year. My kids wanted to read them all year round, and Santa was starting to end up on my ****list! By the middle of July, I told my kids that I refuse to read any books about Christmas until there was snow on the ground. You better believe our first snowfall this year, they had them all out again!
    P.S. The Book with No Pictures and Dragons Love Tacos are 2 of our favorite books! Great list!

  • Such a wonderful list, I think it’s so important to give books as gifts and not just toys!

    Gabby
  • Oh these look like such fun books. I love Christmas books but we only get them out at Christmas time. I think these books would be a hit all year long. I’m especially curious about the book without pictures!
