Favorite Christmas Picture Books--List #2

This is list #2 of Favorite Christmas Picture Books.
These books always put me in the holiday spirit.
This book tells a story that each of us needs to hear (and not just at Christmastime.)
I'm sure that The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey is destined to become a classic.
Every father of a little boy needs to read this book.
I love this book because it tells a wonderful story of sibling rivalry and sibling love. It is also set in Abilene, Texas where there is a statue dedicated to the story at
Anything by Patricia Polacco is wonderful!

What are some of your favorites?

Happy Reading and Merry Christmas!

Remember when we went to the Santa Calls statue together in Abilene and took pictures?! Such fun!

Also, The Twelve Bugs of Christmas is just cute!

So many great books that I would love to read. I don't see the book that I just bought in London for Jordan, called Father Christmas Needs a Wee. I'm sure if you would read it, it would make your list!!!!

Thank you for sharing your lists! I'll have to add a couple of these to my collection-- of course, pretty soon we're going to have to start reading Christmas stories in Octobers so that we can get to all of them by Christmas. :)
