10 Awesome Christmas Books Kids Will Love

Reading with your Grandkids should be something high on your list of things to do. 

I talked about the importance of reading to your Grandkids here, remember?

Reading about Christmas to your Grandkids is an opportunity to share the reasons behind the Christmas season with them. 

Whether it’s funny or a little more serious, all of these books for kids have a message.

If you’ll be visiting with your Grandchildren during the Christmas holiday, grab a few of these books to have at your family get-together.

If not, you can order them from Amazon and have them delivered to your Grandkids before the holiday. 

Then use Skype or FaceTime to read them together.
