Favorite Christmas Books

For several years we have been doing a book study for advent called Christmas Mosaic by Cay Gibson. We throughly enjoy reading 80-100 books in the 4 weeks before Christmas (ok sometimes we don't finish until closer to the Epiphany). I feel so Blessed to have such a great book list to pick from each year. After doing this for many years the kids and I have put together our favorites out of the many that we read. Some we all love. Some the kids love. I am sure the list will change each year. I hope to update it and repost it before Advent so that others can share some of the greatest Christmas books we have found. Please share if you have a favorite.
