FAQ About Christmas Books For Children

Which is the best Christmas book for kids?

Which Christmas book is the best for children, can not be answered in a general way. There are books for different age groups with the most diverse topics. There are, among other things, religious stories, imaginative stories or stories from everyday life. Popular authors include Astrid Lindgren, Cornelia Funke, Charles Dickens and Otfried Preußler. The What’s What series and the popular Pixi series about the girl Conni also focus on Christmas.

Which Christmas book is suitable for which age?

Christmas books for children usually include an age recommendation. For younger children, the stories should not be too exciting or complex and should contain many pictures. Older children may place less and less value on illustrations as they get older, but they are usually still happy to see pictorial variety, as in “Tink the Christmas Pony.” In addition, language appropriate to the age should always be used.

What are the benefits of Christmas books?

Christmas stories not only create a cozy mood, they are also part of the fondest childhood memories for most adults. The stories also increase anticipation for the holiday. Optionally, the selection of the story can also explain and bring closer the meaning and origin of Christmas.
