They are not suitable for any season, but Christmas books are a good gift to wrap our little ones in a halo of magic during the Christmas season. On our site we wanted to show you some of the most representative books of these dates for children.
Who does not know the famous Dickens tale about the ghost of Christmas, or the cute Nutcracker with the King of Mice? Those are classic stories that cannot be missing on the Christmas shelves, but there are many others that are not so well known and that will undoubtedly be a triumph among children's readers.
1- The polar express: A train will take our protagonist through a fantastic journey to the North Pole where he will be able to get to know the work of Santa Claus very closely and discover what the true meaning of Christmas is. A book written by Chris Van Allsburg in 1985, also the author of the famous Jumanji, and whose two films were brought to the cinema years later with great box office success, which explains to children that growing up is not an impediment to feeling the magic of the Christmas. Its author is also a wonderful illustrator of children's stories with numerous awards and international recognition.

2- Letters to Santa Claus: These are the letters that the famous writer JRR Tolkien, the author of the Lord of the Rings, wrote to his children for 23 years posing as Santa Claus, where he told stories and legends of the North Pole. A true marvel of children's literature and hardly known to readers who are not fans of his work. A book full of feelings and metaphors where the author took care of every detail of the book: Tolkien imitated the calligraphy of an old man or designed his own envelopes and stamps.

3- How the Grinch stole Christmas: Another Christmas classic written by Dr. Seuss and published in 1957 for the first time, in rhymed verses and illustrations by the same author. The book tells the story of a kind of grumpy but very funny monster, who does not like Christmas because it has become commercial, and where all those who profit from it are satirized. In this tale, the Grinch has a heart three times smaller than the rest of the inhabitants of Villaquién. That is why he will try to prevent Christmas from coming by stealing all the gifts and decorations ... But he will not get away with it and, moreover, he will learn a lesson that will change him forever.
You will know the Grinch because he has been taken to the cinema on several occasions, the first in 1966 in cartoons narrated by the famous Boris Karloff, and in 2000 where the protagonist was played by Jim Carrey and had great acceptance among the public.
