Finding a new book under the Christmas tree is always a winner in our house. There’s nothing better than curling up on the sofa in our PJs to get engrossed with the next enchanted land we’re gong to visit in a story, or the cool things we might learn in a factual book. Let your child fall down the giant reading rabbit hole with these gorgeous books perfect for Christmas. From pop-ups to ones, to letters to Santa and books you can build yourself, these are some of my favourites this year.

The Story of Elf Mates

Make way for the newest addition to Santa’s Official North Pole. The Story of Elf Mates and their three collectable elves, Elf Mates™ Chef, ? Elf Mates™ Toy Maker, and Elf Mates™ Cobbler have arrived just in time for Christmas.

The Story of Elf Mates helps spread extra Christmas cheer, reminding kids that it is #CoolToBeKind. It’s an important reminder that while elves bring fun and humour, they also serve a greater good, encouraging children to think of others at Christmastime.
