With Christmas just about one week away, it’s a perfect time of year to share a good book with your child. Here at Wollaston Child Care in Quincy, MA, we believe that reading with your child is one of the fundamental elements of developing early literacy skills. But even more important, you’ll be building fond memories while spending time together! Because of this belief, and a few fond memories, we’ve created this list of the top seven Christmas stories to explore with your little one this year.
