I love children's books! I like to write them and collect them.

Among others, I have lots of Little Golden Books.

I decided to get out some of my children's Christmas books to display during the holidays. You can click on the images to see a large version of the picture. I love the graphics on the covers.

There's....... Polly's Christmas Present, The Cat That Climbed the Christmas Tree, A Little Christmas Treasury, Christmas Mice, The Curious Little Kitten's First Christmas, A Stable in Bethlehem, The Animals' Christmas Eve, The Christmas Story and The Happiest Christmas.

And here's....... The Poky Little Puppy's First Christmas, The Christmas Bunny, The Littlest Christmas Elf, Jingle Bells, Little Critter's The Night Before Christmas, a Tell-a-Tale Book The Night Before Christmas, Noni the Christmas Reindeer, and Christmas Mouse.

And..... Tom and Jerry's Merry Christmas, Donald Duck's Christmas Tree, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, The Biggest, Most Beautiful Christmas Tree, and The Christmas Tree That Grew.

Still more.....Pooh's The Sweetest Christmas, Baby's Christmas, The Nutcracker, and The Joy of A Peanuts Christmas 50 Years of Holiday Comics!

Last, but not least.....I Can't Wait Until Christmas, Big Bird Meets Santa Claus, Annabelle's Wish, Raggedy Ann and Andy Help Santa Claus, and Mickey's Christmas Carol.

And here is a fun Christmas board game called Santa's Special Delivery.

Is your favorite book pictured above? Which one is your favorite?


  1. These are great Janet!
    My Mom and I both collect books too.
    I have that Rudolph one - it was mine when I was a little girl. I'm not sure exactly where it is right but I'm smiling at the memory.

  2. I have quite a collection of Christmas books, also.
    I thing The Christmas Story is my favorite.

  3. The Rudolph is my favorite. I still have it somewhere. Me and Paul read it every year growing up.

  4. Janet: What neat books you have to share for Christmas.

  5. Janet,

    Thanks for your Christmas Blog and thanks for showing the children's books. In my long life, I've owned or bought to give many of these. Your article brought back memories of walking to the drug store as a child to buy the current Little Golden Book for 25 cents.

    I am also a writer. I live in the western mountains of North Carolina. On my Christmas blog I linked with ApplLit (Appalachian Literature) and listed Appalachian Christmas Books for Children and Young Adults. I'm not selling anything. Like you, I am celebrating the writing of children's books. That is where the love of language starts.

  6. Hi Jan,
    I think you just out did yourself with this posting. That is really neat and original. Sometimes I wonder what you're going to come up with next.

    Love from big sis.

  7. Hi Janet! So glad that you stopped by for a visit. I am a sister West Virginian too! Born near Gilbert. I have placed your name in our cookie jar for my apron drawing tomorrow. Best wishes!

    Love your book collection! I adore children's literature and have a little collection myself. My favorite is the Polly book. Love those watercolor illustrations!

    Wishing you Christmas joy,

  8. I have some childrens books but I don't have any Christmas, I picked mine up at yard sales for the great-grandchildren when they visit.
    Good post!

  9. I used to read the Poky Little Puppy's First Christmas to my niece every year. Even sometimes before Christmas as she loved it. She's 26 now, but she still remembers. Thanks for sharing all the wonderful books. xxoo

  10. Janet,
    My brothers, sisters & I had almost all of the books you pictured. My absolute favorite was Rudolph! He's still my heroe. I bought The Pokey Little Puppy for my nephew as a Christmas present when he was little. Thanks for all the great memories you just brought back! By the way, I just love the music! Have a Merry Christmas!!
    Deb :-)

  11. Your site is beautiful. Love the bird pictures.

  12. So many of those were favorites of mine!
    The Littlest Christmas Elf,
    The Christmas Tree That Grew,
    The Biggest Most Beautiful Christmas Tree,
    Jingle Bells,
    Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer,
    and Frosty the Snowman!
