Looking for a good book to share with your baby or toddler this holiday season? I've got you covered with this list of 5 Christmas board books for little ones, all heartily approved by my own toddler.
Where is Baby's Christmas Present? by Karen Katz: E is obsessed with the Baby lift-the-flap books from Karen Katz and this one is no exception. Baby is looking for the Christmas present, and along the way encounters Christmas essentials like cookies, candy canes and ornaments. For further reading, check out Baby Loves Winter.
The Cheerios Christmas Play Book by Lee Wade: I recently picked this up to use for one of our advent activities, so while E hasn't seen it yet, I know it will be a hit. Toddlers can use Cheerios to complete Christmas scenes: adding buttons to the angel's robe, decorating the Christmas tree, etc. Great for perfecting the pincer grasp and hand-eye coordination!
Corduroy's Merry Christmas by Don Freeman: This book is sadly out of print but happily available for a penny on Amazon. We have a couple of other holiday-themed Corduroy books (Halloween and Valentine's Day) and E loves them all. Each follows a similar storyline of Corduroy preparing for the holiday with his friends. The text is simple enough for babies and young toddlers and talks about some of the activities that are likely going on in your house to get ready for Christmas, like trimming the tree.
My First Christmas by Tomi DePaola: I can never resist DePaola's books. This is a sweet little story perfect for baby's first Christmas, filled with charming illustrations of familiar Christmas scenes, such as holly and a candle in the window.
Little Blue Truck's Christmas by Alice Schertle: Little Blue is delivering Christmas trees to all of his friends. Although lacking the life lessons present in Little Blue Truck and Little Blue Truck Leads the Way, this is still a solid entry in the series. Plus, the last page lights up. For transportation-obsessed kiddos, this is a solid choice.
