It is easily the happiest time of the year for kids as they deck up the Christmas tree, hang their stockings, and wear their beautiful Christmas hats!
As our kids prepare themselves for an awesome end to the year and a brilliant New Year, we have a few books that they could read to get into the holiday spirit even more! Here are 7 Christmas books each kid must read before Christmas!

We have read it and it is only fair that our kids do too! It teaches kids to look past just the gifts and adore the love, togetherness, and kindness that this festival signifies.
