Dear Santa by Rod Campbell-Such a fun book for little hands and little readers. Much like Dear Zoo, there is a lift the flap on each page of a Christmas present from Santa.
Bear Stays Up for Christmas by Karma Wilson-I remember buying this book two years ago for my daughters first Christmas. At that time I had no idea what the bear books were or how good this book would be, but I took the leap because it looked cute, and it has become one of my very favorite Christmas books. I love bear and his friends, and this story about their Christmas spent together is delightful.

Where is Christmas, Jesse Bear? by Nancy White Carlstrom- I found this cute book this year and I thought it was so cute. It is a simple story about inviting Christmas into our homes.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss- This Christmas classic is just one of the best. I love reading it each year, and the message stills touches me.
