Recommend your Fave Christmas/Winter books!

We do St. Nick here on the night of 12/5 and I'd like St. Nick to bring a couple Christmas or winter-themed books again this year. Last year, we got the Olivia Christmas book (huge hit) and Fletcher Fox (cute), a Biscuit board book, and a lift-the-flap Animals' Advent book. I'm Googling, but please share any recommendations for an almost 4 year old girl and a just-barely-2 year old boy. We also already have a religious-y "story of Christmas" book.

I was thinking of getting the Grinch, but need at least one more idea. Can be a board book for the little guy or a longer "story" for the girl or both. Thanks!

PS I realize it's only 10/16, but I'm due in Dec. and trying to do all my shopping early! Ho Ho Ho!

  • What about "A Charlie Brown Christmas?" There are other books we read "Snow Cat" and "Llama, Llama Holiday Drama."

    I am sure there are other books we have. I just can't remember all of them right now.

  • My DS really likes The Smallest Snowman. It's a Clifford book. We like How the Grinch Stole Christmas but it is LONG, so be forewarned. My DS won't sit through it and he is a pretty patient little guy who LOVES books. We also have Twas the Night Before Christmas in board book form and he loves it. We read it each year on Christmas Eve. I second Llama, Llama Holiday Drama, it's a great book.

    Snowmen At Night and/or Snowmen At Christmas.  

    I second this suggestion, the Snowmen books are fun.  There's also the Polar Express and my older DD likes Madeline's Christmas.

  • My kids LOVE Little People xmas book they can lift the flaps.  Seriously, we read it (a phrase on each page) year round.  Very little reading content other than that-may not be what you are looking for.

  • The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats

    The Mitten by Jan Brett

    Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett, in fact half of Jan Brett's works could fall into Christmas or snowy weather.

  • My DD loves the Fancy Nancy Christas book. "You Are My Miracle" is precious, too (and short). "Llama Llama Holiday Drama" is pretty cute. We have a version of "''Twas the Night Before Christmas" with kid drawings that is really sweet.

  • You know what I need to do? Go to an actual bricks-and-mortar store and look around! I've been ordering so much on Amazon that I didn't even think of this right away. Duh!
