Top books for the Christmas season

We all love a good book and Christmas time is the perfect time to dust off an old classic or break in a new one with the kids. I have fond memories of reading Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer with my parents as a kid. It made me even more excited to leave the carrots out for Rudolph on Christmas Eve.

Here are a list of some of the best on offer. From the classics to new releases take your pick and snuggle down with the kids around the Christmas tree this year.
