We absolutely love Christmas, especially when the Elf on the Shelf comes to stay in December. So I wanted to put together our favorite Christmas books about elves that the kids will love.
The Elf on the Shelf is an important part of our Christmas, even more so now he knows they are not real (well they are of course, just not the ones that come to our house!).
These books about elves are not just great for the kids, you are going to love them too! Most of them are Christmas elves, but the last 2 are classic books about elves that can be enjoyed year-round.
My son absolutely loves reading, especially at Christmas. Check out our favorite book lists for kids there are over 20 book lists included for kids of all ages, for school, for reading, and for every season. Plus lots of free book printables.
