You better not pout, I'm telling you why: if you've been looking for the best children's books to help you celebrate Christmas, your search is over! We made the ultimate list of the best-ever Christmas books for kids to help make your holiday season perfect. Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, and we've got the books to help make it even more special and festive! We've combed through the many Christmas books to find you the best of the best—classics and hidden gems. Don't just take our word for it (or do, because we've read, rated, and tested!); we're sure you're going to rediscover old favorites and find magical new favorites. Whatever your style, just make sure to not wait until the night before Christmas to get reading—there are just too many good ones to enjoy! This list has books for children of every age. It automatically shows you the very best out of all the children's books on the list, but you can filter the list to look just at board books, picture books, or chapter books and find the best in each of those categories. Simply select the type of book you're looking for, and get ready to feel excited and nostalgic. Board books are made of cardboard, and as such, are easier for little hands to turn and enjoy without being easily damaged. We recommend board books for ages 0-3. Picture books are generally recommended for ages 2-6, though every age can—and will—enjoy them! Chapter books are generally great for ages 8-12, though younger kids who are strong readers can try them out, as well as older teens and adults. These are also fun to read aloud to younger ones as you prepare for the holiday. No matter what type of Christmas book you're looking for, you'll find all the best ones here. From newer titles, like the beautiful board book "All Is Merry and Bright" published in 2018, to favorite reads, like the classic "The Night Before Christmas," you're sure to find the best reads to cherish with your family this season. We wish a "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good . . . " holiday season full of reading!
