20 Memorable Christmas Books for Preschoolers
As Christmas approaches, one wonderful way to create lasting memories is to cuddle up on the couch and read books with your kiddos! Make the experience even more special by starting a fire in the fireplace, serving hot cocoa, and playing quiet Christmas music in the background. And if you really want to take the experience over the top, try baking some delicious Christmas cookies beforehand to fill the house with delightful smells as well.
