Why Read Christmas Picture Books?
There is an easy answer to this question. First, they can introduce different Christmas traditions. Secondly, Christmas picture books will get your students into the Christmas spirit… though that isn’t hard when the end of term is filled with parties, concerts and gift giving!
You may want to give your students some background to global Christmas traditions, Father Christmas and the Nativity. History.com has a history of Christmas and information about the origins of Santa can be found at National Geographic.
