Christmas Picture Storybooks

This is my last list for Christmas.  Just couldn’t resist!

A few years ago I began collecting Christmas stories – short picture books – to share with the children through Advent.  I love the combination of a good story with beautiful illustrations. So I thought I’d share some that we have started delving into in the lead up to Christmas:
