Favorite December Read-Alouds

December is jam-packed with lots of holidays, and celebrations. Just with any other time of the year, I love having read-alouds that compliment whatever is going on.

I split this post into different sections so you can easily find the topic you're looking for. Plus, there's lots of non-fiction books too, which I marked as (NF).

Throughout this post, you’ll find Amazon Affiliate links. This means I receive a small commission if you purchase something through that link, at no extra cost to you, that helps keep my blog running and helps fund giveaways!

Please don't ask me to choose a favorite. It won't happen.

If you're looking for Gingerbread read alouds you'll find them HERE. I actually teach a gingerbread unit AFTER Christmas/Winter break.
