Getting kids to bed on Christmas Eve can be a project! Llama Llama Red Pajama captures perfectly that young child struggling to go to bed. Both my children and I identify with this story! Learn about our storytelling routine to help kids get ready for bed, along with other bedtime themed learning activities to go along with this book.

Trains and Christmas go together! Trains originally brought gifts to towns, and they remain popular in Christmas displays. Freight Train captures children’s imaginations, while offering a great way to explore colors. Our geometric shapes train activity pairs beautifully with this book.

Merry Christmas, Mouse! Is a counting book with a Christmas ornaments theme. Make our ornaments kids can color or sew after reading this book!

Gingerbread Baby is one of my family’s favorite Jan Brett books. I love her twist on this classic story. I created a free printable gingerbread house glyph activity to go along with this book.

Rhyming text and delightful illustrations charm in this version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Pair this book with this fun reindeer letter matching game.
