Head to your local library and check out these Christmas picture books, selected by Erin, to read together this holiday season.
We love finding new books at the library.
We also love making my husband roll his eyes by not returning those books on time and, consequently, racking up fines. I’m not the only parent who struggles with that, right?
I especially love books with humor and beautiful illustrations. And my kids are delighted by unique features like pop-up pictures, scratch-n-sniff elements, textured pages, or removable pieces.
It is always fun to find new books to go along with the seasons. Reading Christmas picture books is hands-down one of my very favorite holiday activities to share with my kids!
