37 Christmas Read Aloud Chapter Books

Christmas Read Aloud Chapter Books are an excellent way to connect with your children at bedtime throughout the holiday season. 

While I never thought that this would be my life... my kids love books. Especially Kyle who can be found reading anywhere from 30-60 chapter books per week. That's not a typo. With Christmas coming up I wanted to compile a good list of Christmas read aloud chapter books that we could read together as a family, and that Kyle could read to himself before bed. If you're in the market for some Christmas chapter books for kids, here are 38 titles we've either already read, or are excited to read this holiday season.

Happy Narwhalidays: We actually haven't dived into this series yet, but this book is broken up into three holiday themed stories, including on about the arrival of Merry-Mermicorn, a Christmas themed unicorn/mermaid who comes to celebrate!

Dragon’s Merry Christmas: I love this Dragon book series and the Halloween one was a favorite for me growing up. We haven't read the Christmas version, but it's a collection of Dragon themed short stories that are perfect for young readers. You could easily read a chapter or short story per night, and have the book read in a week. This one is particularly great for younger audiences.

The Girl Who Saved Christmas: This book and author are new to me. This book is about a girl who believed in Santa enough that she got the very first Christmas gift from Santa. However, when her mother gets ill her Christmas spirit falls and the morale and holiday spirit goes down around the world. Santa goes on a quest to find Amelia, boost her spirits, and save Christmas for everyone. 

A Boy Called Christmas: Written by the same author as The Girl Who Saved Christmas. In this story Nikolas has to travel to the North Pole to save his father, when he gets there he realizes Christmas Spirit is low, and that he needs to try and save Christmas, but he can't do it without finding his father first. 

My Weird School: Miss Holly is Too Jolly: Kyle loves the My Weird School series! This book is about a Spanish teacher who goes wild and starts hanging mistletoe everywhere. See how the students get out of the conundrum in this cute story. 

My Weird School: Deck The Halls, We’re Off the Walls: Another My Weird School book, AJ and his friends need to save the day when a concert at the mall where Santa Claus is at makes things go a little haywire. The friends from Ella Mentary School need to calm things down. 

Amelia Bedelia Wraps it Up: Amelia Bedelia and her family celebrate and prepare for Christmas while honoring the true spirit of the holiday.

Magic Tree House Merlin Missions Christmas in Camelot: This is the first Merlin Mission book in the Magic Tree House Series. Merlin Mission books are for more advance readers as opposed to the traditional Magic Tree House series. In this book Jack and Annie travel to Camelot to go on a special quest and save Christmas in the process.

Magic Tree House Merlin Missions A Ghost Tale for Christmas: This story is a spin on A Christmas Carol. Jack and Annie travel back in time to help Charles Dickens who has been thrown in Jail! I love that these books combine historical fiction and fun in these creative tales. 

The True Gift: All year long Liam and Lilly look forward to Christmas on their grandparents farm, but this year a white cow changes everything and they have to learn the meaning behind this special gift. 

Nate The Great and The Crunchy Christmas: In this Nate the Great book Annie's dog is unhappy when his Christmas mail goes missing. Nate the Great takes the case to find the missing mail so Annie's dog can have a Christmas treat. 

The Christmasaurus: Santa accidentally finds a dinosaur egg at the bottom of the ocean and sits on the egg to hatch it. Things get precarious when Santa accidentally gives the real dinosaur to a boy instead of a stuffed dinosaur, and then the boy needs to protect the dinosaur from a local hunter. 

Rainbow Magic: Holly the Christmas Fairy: Jack Frost has stolen Santa's sleigh with three important gifts on board. Without them Christmas could be ruined forever. Rachel and Kristy look to save Christmas with help from Holly the Christmas Fairy. 

Flat Stanley: Stanley’s Christmas Adventure: I recently purchased this book for Kyle and he gives it two thumbs up. Santa doesn't think that there are anymore good children in the world, so his Daughter Sarah calls Stanley's family for help. It's Stanley's job to convince Santa that kids are still good and tries to restore Santa's faith in Christmas. 

Heidi Heckelbeck and the Christmas Surprise: Heidi loves Christmas, but took and lost her mother's special charm bracelet. By the time she finds it, the bracelet has been crushed by a snowplow, and when Heidi tries to fix it, she makes it worse. Can Heidi tell her mom about the bracelet and still have Christmas magic in her life? You'll have to read and find out!

A to Z Mysteries: White House White-Out: I think at this point Kyle has read every single book ever written by Ron Roy. This one is fun because it combines the characters from his Capital Mysteries books with the characters from A to Z Mysteries. Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose meet KC and Marshall at the White House, but everything goes crazy when the President's dog goes missing among all the people decorating the White House for Christmas.

The Critter Club: Amy’s Very Merry Christmas: This is a series that I'm excited to start reading with Kinsley. Amy wants to do something special for Ms Sullivan who is going to be alone on Christmas. When the Critter Club has some guinea pigs that need to be adopted, Amy has a trick up her sleeve to send some cheer Ms Sullivan's way. 

Ballpark Mysteries: Christmas in Cooperstown: This series is new to me and I haven't read any of the books, but as someone who is from NY and has visited Cooperstown, I feel deeply invested in reading this book. Mike and Kate are wrapping presents for a charity and get to spend the night in the baseball hall of fame. When they're snooping around the museum at night, they realize one of the cards are fake. They have to find the real card, catch a bad guy, and wrap a bunch of presents in time for Christmas! Can they pull it off?

Geronimo Stilton: The Christmas Toy Factory: As you can tell with the next six titles on this list, this appears to be a very expansive book series, with seven total books that are just about Christmas. This series alone has 70 books, but 281 books all together with multiple spinoff series. In this book Geronimo acts as Santa Clause for everyone in New Mouse City for his grandfather who is trying to write a book.
