Here are some other books David and I discovered that are not part of his Christmas countdown:
Stable in Bethlehem: A Countdown to Christmas by Joy N. Hulme. This is a simple board book – we enjoy counting the different things on each page.
Clopper the Christmas Donkey by Emily King. Illustrated in a cartoon-ish style, this book tells the Christmas story through the perspective of a donkey. I included it in this list because it’s so different from other Christmas books I’ve found.
Room for a Little One: A Christmas Tale by Martin Waddell. Cute story featuring the animals in the stable. I’ve seen this in paperback and board book versions.
The First Christmas Night by Keith Christopher. Beautiful illustrations and lyrical verse. Thanks to a friend for this book!
