5 Christmas Books without Santa Claus

Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post

My husband and I have always shared stories of Santa Claus with our kids but we have some friends who haven't.  Finding Christmas books where Santa isn't the featured character can be quite a challenge as so many children's Christmas books feature Santa as a central character.

If you are looking for a children's Christmas book sans Santa, here are a few books worth checking out.

The Snow Angel
Two little mice are playing in the snow one Christmas morning when they see an angel. Soaring through the sky, with sunshine gleaming on its wings, it is magical. But as they watch, the angel flutters and tumbles to the ground. Is there anything the mice can do to save the lost and lonely angel before it is too late?

The Mitten
The bestselling modern classic, in an oversized board book edition perfect for sharing.
When Nicki drops his white mitten in the snow, he goes on without realizing that it is missing.

One by one, woodland animals find it and crawl in; first, a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others, each one larger than the last.



Holly and Ivy
a little orphan girl named Ivy wishes for a doll to hold and a family to love her at Christmas, and of a Christmas doll named Holly who wishes for a child to own her,



Who Built the Stable?
Who built the stable where Jesus lay? Multiple Coretta Scott King Award-winner Ashley Bryan has a very good idea in this beautiful and moving new layer to the nativity story.



And for the little ones, be sure to check out My Christmas ABC's from Tommy Nelson Books.









Celebrate Christmas from A to Z with this glitter-tastic alphabet book! My Christmas ABCs highlights favorite parts of the holiday season, from the angel at the tippy-top of the tree to the ZZZs you'll need after a blessed Christmas Day! Features glitter on every spread.

We received this book from Tommy Nelson Books as we are Booklook Bloggers.

Your family will love the festive charm of this darling holiday board book. This is the perfect way to celebrate the fun parts of Christmastime while helping your toddlers and preschoolers master their ABCs. With glitter on every page, this eye-catching book will make your little ones ooh and ahh as they enjoy the blessings of the season:

C is for crunchy candy canes with stripes of red and white.


J is for Jesus, God's Son who was born on Christmas Day.

L is for the lights that give home a twinkly glow.

T is for the Christmas tree that stands so tall and green.

Curl up by the Christmas tree as you and your little ones spell out what makes the season so very merry in My Christmas ABCs.

There are no references to Santa Claus in any of these books.

OH! The Places You'll Go! Giveaway Hop + 7 Out of the Box Uses for Erasers

Another Summer has come and gone and it's time to head Back to School!  

If you're anything like me you took advantage of all those Back to School deals and stocked up on all those back to school deals and now have a surplus of school supplies which will probably end up in a junk drawer or put away someplace where you will never find it when you need it.

Take for instance those pink erasers.  I buy a pack every year and every year without fail my family gives me that look when they see that pack of lone erasers in the back to school shopping cart.

Here are a few of my favorite ways to use erasers around the house

Erase away scuffs on your kitchen floor with an eraser.
