I always love this time of year! During the Christmas season, reading books is a great way to get into the spirit with your children. As our kids grow we want them to understand why we celebrate Christmas. Sure presents, gingerbread houses and Christmas carols are fun, but the real reason for the season is the birth of our Savior, Jesus! So I created a list of 7 Jesus-Centered Christmas Board Books to enjoy with your family this holiday season.
