Favorite Advent and Christmas Books Link-Up


There are so many wonderful Advent and Christmas books available for children.  Every year I think "How can I possibly find more to add to our collection?" and every year I have no problem whatsoever, and usually end up with an ever growing wish list for the next year!

As Charlotte and I were discussing our Christmas Books, she asked me to host a link-up here so that we can all share our favorites in one place!  Won't you please join us?

I've already posted our Advent and Christmas Booklist for this year, along with the new books that we'll be adding to our collection on the feast of St. Nicholas, but now I'd love to hear all about your family favorites and discover some new treasures.   As Cay Gibson says in Christmas Mosaic, An Illustrated Book Study for Advent and Christmas, "This booklist is as endless as the possibilities for Christmas Tree Decoration."

Please add a link to your blog post below, or feel free to leave your favorites in the comment box.  Be sure to share the link to this post so that everyone can find the link-up.

  1. Hi Jessica,
    I have added your newest link up to my "Catho-LINK Library", an index of Catholic link-ups.

    I continue to add active link-ups as I find them. I have a couple of yours...but I know there are more, I just can't find them! Let me know if there are any you would like me to add before I post the list publicly. Thanks!

Dear Jessica, I thought I posted a comment on your earlier post but it may have got lost somewhere :) so - again, I want to thank you for your lovely blog and to wish you and your family a very blessed Christmas. Good health to you and your coming babe; you are in my thoughts and prayers every day. Love from Valerie in NZ.

  3. Monica ~ Thank you! I'll try and take a look and see what else I can send you. During the Easter Season we have link ups over at Catholic Cuisine for the Garden of the Good Shepherd. Those might be ones you'd like to include? I'll send you an email.

    Valerie ~ Thank you so much for your comment and prayers. God bless you and your family!

  5. Jessica, Thank you for your kind comments. That "Littlest Angel" book was mine as a child. I guess it is one of my favorites too! :)

  10. Our family reads these books together at lunch. They follow one character for all of Lent and then they witness the manager scene.

    What a great idea:) Thank you.
    I hope you don't mind but rather than linking to my blog posts I linked directly to my website (where all my book reviews end up anyhow). This way as I add more you can easily see all books I chat about. I really have lots more books to share:)

  14. Imagine my surprise when I had written my book post this morning and then found this link-up by accident tonight! How fun and timely to have so many other great recommendations to go through. In my opinion, there can never be too many Christmas books in the house!
