Holiday Book for Kids
Pick up the new X-mas Files book for your Christmas book collection, so you and your family create holiday memories this year and in years to come.
Holiday memories with books
We love books in our house and regularly add new ones to our home library.
I look forward to pulling out the Christmas books each year, so we can read them again.
Some are from my childhood and others more recent.
It’s fun to remember loved ones who gifted the books to us or where we were, when we bought them.
Just flipping through the pages of the holiday books is enough to bring back all those warm fuzzy holiday feelings.
New children’s Christmas book
The X-mas Files: Classified Secrets from the North Pole is a beautiful and entertaining hardcover holiday book that just came out this year.
It will be a wonderful addition to your family holiday traditions, so kids and adults will look forward to reading it each year.
Advent calendar book
This is a book, but it is written like an advent calendar.
The first chapter of the book is for December 1st and there are new chapters for each day leading up to Christmas.
Older kids may want to read on their own, but this really is a fun activity for the whole family.
Read a chapter together each night before bed, so kids can have happy dreams as they anticipate the fun they’ll have on December 25th.

The X-mas Files:
Classified Secrets From the North Pole
Pub Date 10/12/21
Find out what really happens behind the scenes at Santa’s workshop in a Christmas countdown book that reveals the secrets of the North Pole!
An unauthorized tell-all penned by an ousted South Pole elf with an X-mas ax to grind exposes what really goes on at the North Pole in the 24 days leading up to Christmas.
This hilarious, day-by-day accounting pulls back the red velvet curtain to reveal the truth behind Santa’s Christmas “magic.”
The book delivers laugh-out-loud fun for the whole family with activities for 24 days plus added surprises hidden throughout.
