I love reading to my kids. Books have always helped me explain certain concepts and traditions to them and Christmas is no exception. Although we don't own a bunch of bilingual books about the holidays, we do have a couple of really good ones and, through the years, I've found several more at our local library. 

Check out my list of recommendations:

While most of the books are bilingual, a couple have Spanish words embedded throughout the text and a couple are in Spanish only. Enjoy!
