Stories from Christmas have captivated readers, especially young ones for years. If you are a parent and not sure what Christmas-themed book to get your kid, there is a lot to choose from. Some are fantastical, others are colorful, and others tell the story of Jesus Christ. In no particular order, here are five Christmas books for kids:
