Christmas Picture Books


Wow! My second blog post. 🤣 

I have to do better!

This year, I've decided to share some of my favorite read alouds for the month of December. If you're interested in purchasing any of these books, there is an Amazon! (Just click on the image)

Let's get started, shall we?



A World of Cookies For Santa: Let's start by saying, I am a sucker for illustrations, and this book do not disappoint! Readers learn various Christmas traditions around the world, and the treats other children leave for Santa! 
There are even recipes included!

The Tree That's Meant To Be: Here's another beautifully illustrated picture book! I discovered this book this year, and it's become one of my favorites! I love the message in this book on embracing who you are. It's definitely a book you should add to your classroom library!
Thank me later. lol

The Nutcracker in Harlem: A spin on the classic, The Nutcracker, with a splash of jazz and a sprinkle of soul! Go on an adventure with Marie as she finds her voice, in this magical story. A great Christmas tale and a must-have for your holiday picture book collection!

The Great Spruce: I know they say never judge a book by its cover, but that's what I did with this book! The is a cute story about the Christmas tradition and it incorporates science! A feel-good story with a heartwarming end. Bring Alec and his favorite tree into your classroom this year! 

A Piñata in a Pine Tree: I LOVE a book that rhymes and flows, and this book does just that! This story will easily grab the attention of young readers. I love how the author included Spanish throughout the book. (with pronunciations) This is a great picture book that introduces Latino holiday traditions in a fun way, with a sweet surprise at the end!

Finding Christmas: Want to teach your students about the true meaning of the holiday season? This book is what you need in your life! (I love a book with a message! Am I right?) Follow the friends as they learn the importance of helping those in need! 
... and might I add, the illustrations inside are captivating!

The Little Reindeer: Okay, you're probably sick of me talking about illustrations but that's my weakness! This book is full of adorable pictures with little peep through details that my students loved last year! This story brings the magic of Christmas to life as the little girl goes on a nighttime adventure. A heartwarming story of friendship makes this a great picture book to add to your holiday collection.


I have so many other books that I love to read to my students during this time of year, but I would be writing this blog post for weeks in order to share them all. 🤪

I know this year is different, so I'm sharing a few books I found online (Epic) that I've read to my students. Dasher is probably my favorite! I ended up purchasing the actual book the same day we listened to the story!
