Booklist: Christmas Stories

Today’s list is a short one: Christmas stories.

To keep things as simple as possible, I divide the books into four ages ranges: preschool to early elementary; elementary; middle years (roughly 5th-8th grades); and teens. Keep in mind that many harder books can be read aloud to younger children and that older ones can still enjoy and get a lot out of easier books.

Christmas Stories

Dickens, Charles. A Christmas Carol. This is one of Dickens’ shortest works so it is actually a good place to start with him. Middle years, read aloud earlier.

Estes, Eleanor. Coat Hanger Christmas Tree. A wonderful older author. Elementary level.

Nesbit, E. Conscience Pudding. Nesbit is another favorite author. Elementary.

Seredy, Kate. Tree for Peter. Elementary-middle years.
