Today I thought I would share some of our all-time favorite Christmas read-aloud books. As I have said before, we love our afternoon read-aloud times, so after Thanksgiving we turn our reading time to some of our favorite Christmas books (click on the covers to go to Amazon for more details on each book). You will also find below my favorite Christmas lesson plans and links. I hope you enjoy these! Here they are…
