Christmas books that every child should have. First, of course, is "The Night Before Christmas" (Clement Clarke Moore, 1822, published 1823) about Santa Claus' visit. Next a somewhat newer tale "Santa Mouse" (Michael Brown, 1966), is a great story that hasn't gotten the attention it deserves about a mouse who thinks of Santa Claus before himself. The "Wind in the Willows Christmas" (Kenneth Grahame 1908) will bring a smile to most hearts and is a wonderful story about Christmas. "Auntie Claus" (Elise Primavera,1999) is a story is the story of Santa Claus' sister's family, with a nice message about the first and final rule. "Auntie Claus And the Key to Christmas" (2002) is the sequel. The "Sweet Smell of Christmas" (Patricia M. Scarry, 1970) is a "scratch and sniff" book with all the scents of Christmas.

           

"Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas" (Russell Hoban, 1971) and "The Mole Family's Christmas" (Russell Hoban, 1969) are two more classics in particular the Mole Family's drawings are terrific. The Mole Family's Christmas is the most enjoyable of the two, but both are head and shoulders above many recent tales. "Left Behind, the Kids" (Jerry B. Jenkins, Tim LaHaye, 1999) is a great introduction about the true meaning of Christmas. "The Polar Express" (Chris Van Allsburg, 1980) while newer than "A Christmas Carol" (Charles Dickens, 1843) is likewise destined to become a classic about the meaning of belief! Finally, "The Littlest Angel" (Charles Tazewell, 1946) is just one of those stories we have to read at North Pole around Christmas.

         

These are the original "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer (Robert L. May, 1939) " and the book version of the 1960s television program "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer". The Robert L. May original from 1939 has more verse and a longer story than the version from the televsion special, but both are great for kids. "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (Dr. Seuss, 1957) is the Dr. Seuss classic, what more can you say!
