One of our favorite activities to do during the holidays is to countdown the 25 days of Christmas by reading one special book a day. This year, we are going to keep track of the books that we read using our 25 Day of Christmas Books BINGO chart. Children are always excited to countdown the days till Christmas and this a fun way to encourage them to read during the holidays.
The 25 Days of Christmas Books:
We have selected 25 of our favorite holiday and seasonal books for this activity. Some of these are classic titles that we’ve read over and over and others are new stories that we’ve never seen.

You can find these books at your city or school library, at bookstores like Barnes and Noble, or online at Amazon. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can get it for a discounted rate right now. I love the convenience of ordering books for activities like this, because I can find the ones that I don’t already own in one store and have all of them shipped to my house in two days.
25 Days of Christmas Books BINGO:
There are many ways to use the Christmas Books BINGO chart. If you are a classroom teacher, each student can have their own chart and select a book to read independently during a literacy center. Or, you can read aloud one book a day and complete the chart together as a class.
If you are doing this at home with your own children, you can have them select a book and read it together as a family. I love to wrap each book especially the new ones that I buy so the one that we pick everyday is a special surprise.
Whether you are a teacher or a parent (or both!), you children are sure to love counting down to Christmas with the 25 Days of Christmas Books BINGO and reading a new story everyday.
