There are so many Christmas books out there, but if you’re looking for ones that celebrate the story of Christmas, I have a list of some of our favorites.

Encouraging the love of reading, during the holidays, with our free Christmas Reading Challenge Kit Printable for kids

Several Christmases ago, Hubs and I started one of our favorite Christmas traditions.

We made it a tradition to always add a book gift (most often than not, it was books, and not a book!) under the tree.

Over the years, our Christmas library has grown.

And now it’s one of the kids favorite things to drag out when it’s time to start decorating for Christmas.

This year, as you countdown to Christmas break, encourage your kids to keep reading with my free Christmas Reading Kit for Kids.

Simply click on the link, or the image above, to download, and print this wonderful kit.

As the kids begin to get excited about Christmas drawing near, it would be wonderful to sit down as a family, and read together the story of Christmas. To help kids, I’ve included 16 Bibles verses, in the kit, that center around the story of Christ’s birth.

The Christmas Reading Kit also includes:

  • A fun Christmas Reading Challenge. (Remember our popular Fall Reading Challenge? Well, the kids now have a Christmas one to add to their collection.
  • A Reading Log (This is particularly helpful especially if kids need to turn in a book report or log, when school opens in the new year.)
  • Adorable sloth bookmarks, because, why not?

While you can print everything out on regular paper, I would highly recommend you print this kit out on white cardstock.

For a more durable option, consider laminating the bookmarks, Reading Challenge sheet, and Bible verses sheet.

I also have this Christmas Reading Challenge available in my Etsy store- Fun Faith Printables.

    1. I hope you make lots of memories. Feel free to share with their buddies too. I shared the Reading Challenge with my daughter’s 1st grade teacher, and she mentioned she has been having so much fun getting photographs of the kiddos reading under their Christmas trees. Which reminds me, I need to take a pic of mine doing that. Lol.
