Welcome to December’s Books Round-up is everyone well and truly getting into the Christmas spirit now? There are so many great Christmas book posts out there this month, as well as lots of people doing some fab Christmas book advents. 

Top Books for Christmas

If you’re on the hunt for some Christmas books to fill your shelves with or even to go in your Christmas Eve box then there are some super lists out there to help you choose the perfect one. I have put together a post with recommendations from other bloggers 31 Christmas Books Every Child Should Read some of the ideas actually led me to go an buy some more books for my children! Pinks Charming has also written a list with 5 Great Christmas Books for Children there are some of my favourites on this list too.  

The Welsh Mum has shared her top ten Christmas books for 1 to 5 year olds, I would definitely agree with most of this list and have recently purchased The Jolly Christmas Postman on the back of so many blogger recommendations. Digital Motherhood has also shared her favourite Christmas books – I can see the lots of people are big fans of the Mog Christmas books. 


Book Advents

There are lots of book-loving bloggers writing about Book Advents this month. I do like Adventures and Play’s Storybook Snowman Advent which is wonderfully creative and made in the shape of a snowman. 

If you have a toddler, then head over to read Mama Mighall’s Book Advent for Toddlers who shares 24 Christmas books perfect for a toddler advent. Or alternatively, if your children are older, My Boys Club has a book advent for Tweens this Christmas with some fantastic books for older children.  

Hello Lovely has also put together a post of favourite Christmas books from a selection of bloggers to give people ideas for putting together a Christmas advent. 

If you’re still looking for some Christmas book advent inspiration there is a great selection out there for you to choose from the following bloggers: Sophie Ella and Me, The Ish Mother, The Bear and the Fox, The Queen of Collage and Diary of a First Child.

Christmas Book Reviews

There are also some really lovely Christmas book reviews. I think my all-time favourite Christmas book ever is The Night Before Christmas, and my husband reviewed it on the blog last year, explaining why it was so special for him. Mrs. Hible has reviewed a modern rewrite of this classic book The Night Before Christmas Mustard’s Christmas Wish which she has described as one of the loveliest stories she has read in a long while. 

Susan K Mann has reviewed a book with her 9 year old son called Lily and the Christmas Wish, which sounds like such a magical festive book. Hodge Podge Days has written about a book called The Christmas Snowflake, which again has a rave review and she has summarised as a wonderful keepsake book that can come out year after year. All of them sound delightful!

Christmas Creative Books

If you’re still hunting for Christmas bookish present ideas, Thimble Twig has a fab post with creative book present ideas for Christmas to buy for children. Which is all about sparking creativity and activities to do with your children. For a final Christmas bookish craft idea, Messy Little Monster has shown you how to do footprint craft based on The Night Before Christmas and it looks like great fun. 

I hope you enjoyed the round-up. If you would like to be included in next month’s round-up I would love to hear from you, you can tweet me @laurasummers or drop me an email
