From Leah at Family + Craft: "I started collecting picture books for our holiday library when my oldest was just a baby. Each December, I select our old favorites along with a few new-to-us books. I wrap them up, and we open one each night leading up to Christmas--a fun twist on the traditional Christmas countdown."

Here's a list of 25 of my FAVORITE holiday books for kids!
