Over the last few years I’ve collected a number of Christmas books.
Unfortunately, while there are hundreds of books available there aren’t many quality Christmas Picture Books out there. Books that inspire wondering, awe and the re-imagining of the Christmas story and what it might mean for us today are few and far between.
Many of the Christmas books are merely rehashing old Christmas songs, giving cute little pictures to go with the lyrics, or a retelling of the same old story with images that look like they’ve been stolen from a 1950’s bible story book, the type that inspire yawns not the deep wondering that can be inspired by a great image.
Here’s my top ten Christmas picture books, (in no particular order)
Keep an eye out as I’ve got more Christmas books to add to the site during Advent 2015
The Star by Roddy Hamilton (this isn’t a picture book, but it’s still a beautiful story – worthy of pictures)
