I am the baby asleep in the hay and I am the reason for Christmas Day.
This is the last line of one of my new favorite Christmas books [Christmas in the Manger by Felicia Bond] and as I read it to my twins this afternoon I was reminded once again of just how much I love sharing Christmas with my family. We spend the whole month focusing on Jesus in extra special ways and I love every moment of our celebration.
One of our favorite ways to share Christmas with each other is through Christmas literature. We have a collection of picture books, books and devotionals that grows every year and each of my children has a favorite. One of my children loves The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey. Another child likes Jacob’s Gift by Max Lucado. Not surprisingly, my little ones prefer Room For A Little One. Mostly we just enjoy snuggling on the couch together to read about Jesus.
These are our favorite Christmas picture books:
