Thoughts for Thursday: Our Favorite Christmas Books

Happy Thursday Friends! Today I wanted to pop in and share some of our favorite Christmas books with you all.  These are books that my boys have loved over the past few years along with a few that we have added in this year.

1. Bear Stays up for Christmas- Miller loves the Bear series books and the Christmas one is so cute! Bears friends help him to stay up and enjoy the Christmas holiday with them since he's usually hibernating.  

2. Little Blue Truck's Christmas- this is another favorite as most boys I know LOVE the Little Blue Truck series and the Christmas one is so cute.  It helps with counting and recognizing numbers and ends with a light up Christmas tree at the end that my boys love.  

3. Merry Christmas Stinky Face- My boys love the book I Love you Stinky Face so I had to get the Christmas version this year and so far it's a hit.  The boys think all the scenarios the little boy comes up with for Santa are hilarious.  

4. Duck and Goose It's Time for Christmas- I love the Duck and Goose series.  They're simple, short and too the point and the Christmas one is fun.  My boys love to yell It's time for Christmas at the end!  

5. Richard Scarry's The Night Before Christmas- We love love love Richard Scarry's Cars Trucks and Things that Go so I knew the boys would love the Christmas book by him.  

6. Goodnight Christmas- The Goodnight series is another series we're huge fans of so we had to get the Christmas version.

7. The Berenstain Bears The Joy of Giving- I just ordered this one for the boys. As they get older I really want to make sure I do a good job of instilling in them that Christmas is more than just getting presents for themselves and that they can find joy and happiness in helping and giving to others.  

8. Dinosaur Christmas- this is another one I just ordered because I know they will flip for a dinosaur Christmas book! I'll let you know how we like it.  

9. Usborne Nativity Flap Book- I bought this one last year but this year Miller is really into it. He's a donkey in the school Christmas pageant this year so he's really taken to learning more about the birth of Jesus and the true meaning of Christmas.  I love Usborne books, we have quite a few of them and the quality can't be beat! 

10.  Merry Christmas, Curious George- who doesn't love Curious George and all the trouble he gets into!  Again another favorite in our collection.  

11. The Polar Express- I just purchased this for the boys and I'm so excited to read it to them. I do wonder if they'll be a little to young to understand the message but I think they'll really like the trains ;).  I'm hoping to read this one on Christmas Eve every year to them like my mom used to do with us.  

12. Rory the Dinosaur Needs a Christmas Tree- I randomly picked this one up at Target a few weeks ago and the boys love it.  We just discovered Rory and his Dad but I think we will probably pick a few of their other books because you know we love dinosaurs and the stories are so cute.
