Virtual learning has increased our children’s screen time this season, and it is hard to limit when it involves their education. A good idea this holiday season is to read holiday-themed books. Children love a good holiday story, and they can read books that they know as movies. Some The Wiser compiled a list of 25 holiday-themed children’s books to check out, and we picked some of our favorites!

This lyrical book by Lara Hawthorne uses the song lyrics that most know. The beautiful illustrations will delight any young reader.
This illustrated book is now an Emmy-nominated film on Netflix. Adults might think this story is a little fun as it tells the tale of how Angela ends up stealing an item from an altar.
This holiday tale is a fun depiction and adaptation of the gingerbread man story. Written and illustrated by Edward Hemingway, this cute picture book is sure to please.
