Christmas is by far my favorite time of the year! I try super hard not to be busy and just have simple Christmas seasons.
Some years that is easier said than done!
Having a simple Christmas season always includes plenty of time to sit with my children and read tons of Christmas books.
Here are a few of our favorite books about Christmas Trees! Find them at your local library, and make time to read through them with your kiddos.
Sitting and reading with your children is one of the best ways to connect with them, while making memories. In fact, it’s probably my favorite way as a mama. 🙂

Favorite Books About Christmas Trees
As usual with all of my book lists for kids, I have read each of these books personally. I can’t recommend books that I haven’t read!
I added my own thoughts and reasons I recommend the books, so you can decide if it’s a good fit for your children.
Enjoy reading with your sweet ones this Christmas Season! ♥

Christmas Day in the Morning by Pearl S. Buck
This book received excellent reviews on Amazon, so I chose it as a new read for our family this year. I was not disappointed in the least!
If I can’t read the book without crying the first 20 times, it’s a hit!
Christmas Day in the Morning is a beautiful story of how a teenage boy gives the gift of his time and effort to his father. What an unbelievably beautiful story of giving, thoughtfulness, and consideration for one’s parents.
A must-read for the Christmas Season!!
Why Christmas Trees Aren’t Perfect by Richard H. Schneider
When I purchased this book, I didn’t realize that the sacrifices of the “perfect” tree were compared to the sacrifice of Christ. I had no idea it was a Christian-themed book. But I was happily surprised when we got to the end of the story and realized the comparison!
My children and I will never look at the big gaps in our Christmas trees the same way again! Such a heart-warming read.
Also, this is a superb book to introduce personification to your children, if they haven’t already been exposed.
The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree by Gloria Houston
I’ve written extensively on why we love and adore The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree. It’s one of our top favorites, regardless of the time of year!

Hint: Bring tissues the first 10 times you read it!
A Wish to Be a Christmas Tree by Colleen Monroe
The illustrations in A Wish to Be a Christmas Tree are just beautiful, especially when paired with the rhyming text. Even young preschoolers can understand that the Christmas Tree is heartbroken that his dream of being someone’s special tree just hasn’t happened.
However, the tree’s friends in the forest make him feel incredibly special, which is so sweet to read!
While older kids can recognize the neat transformation the tree undergoes, even younger ones will love this book.
Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree by Robert Barry
This is such a perfect book for the younger crowd! In a simple rhyming text, we learn all about Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree and how his one little act of trimming the top blessed many other families!
It’s a predictable story line that is just perfect for the Preschool to Second Grade crowd.
Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree also provides a needed lesson for all ages: what we consider to be ‘trash’ and throw out, could greatly bless another!
O Christmas Tree: History and Holiday Traditions by Jacqueline Farmer
It is hard to find a non-fiction book about Christmas Trees! O Christmas Tree, however, fits the bill perfectly. In fact, I used it to write quite a bit of my Christmas Worksheet Packet for 2nd-4th graders.
Read all about the history of Christmas Trees, starting with the Ancient Egyptians. This is a fascinating book, and a non-fiction book that we look forward to reading each year.
It may be the Cliff Clavin in myself and my family, but we love reading through the list of Fun Facts in the back of the book!
