I’m wondering if anyone has recommendations for non-religious, non-Santa Christmas books for kids. We’re atheists, and we aren’t doing Santa either. I just found Little Blue Truck’s Christmas. In it, the truck delivers Christmas trees to friends. It’s perfect for my two-year old.
Anyone have other non-religious, non-Santa Christmas books that might be good for toddlers, preschoolers, and older kids too?
Thanks so much! -Emily
