Favorite Holiday Picture Books

We asked our readers to share some of their all-time favorite picture books to read during the holiday season and loved reading all their responses. We thought you might like to see the list too. There are some I remember fondly from my childhood as well as some I don't think I've ever seen! Nothing gets me quite in the holiday spirit than snuggling up and sharing festive picture books with my family. Take a look at this wonderful list and let us know your own favorites in the comments below. Happy Holidays to all! READ MORE
