Christmas is a magical time, and there are literally hundreds of books out there that are written about the wonders of Christmas. Once in a while, it’s nice to have a good laugh reading aloud some of the funnier Christmas picture books to your kids!
Here are 5 of my personal picks for funny Christmas books that are memorable for the classroom and for your home!
- How Santa Lost His Job By: Stephen Krensky
Santa has the best job he can think of — brining presents each Christmas to children all around the world. Every year he prepares for his trip: He trims his beard, takes a bath, gets dressed, and packs up his sleigh fort he long night ahead. But there are always a few unexpected delays that make things a little hectic. Muckle, one of the elves who helps Santa, thinks he can come up with a more efficient way of delivering the toys — a method that won’t involve Santa at all.
2. How Santa Got its Job By: Stephen Krensky
Have you ever wondered what Santa did before he was Santa?
When Santa was young and needed a job, no one was looking for a man in a red suit to deliver gifts on Christmas. So Santa tried just about everything — from a chimney sweep to a postman to a circus performer. But none of these worked out. It wasn’t until he met a group of elves who helped him use all his special talents, that Santa was able to find his dream job.
3. Merry Christmas, Space Case By Edward Marshall
4. Santa’s Stuck By: Rhonda Gawier Greene
This playful picture book answers the age-old question: Just how does Santa shimmy up and down chimneys? Not very easily sometimes! When the rotund fellow with a sweet tooth overdoes it on the snacks, he gets stuck inside a chimney. The reindeer on the roof try pulling him out, to no avail. A dog, a cat, and some kittens try pushing from below, with no luck. It takes a tiny, ingenious mouse to come up with the way to POP! Santa out so that Christmas can go on. Good show–ho, ho, ho!
5. The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas By: Tom Fletcher
Danny wants everything for Christmas. But what he gets is a dinosaur, a very hungry dinosaur.Danny’s new dino eats up all of Christmas, but as we all know, what goes in must come out . . .Danny is about to have the most EXPLOSIVE Christmas of his life! There’s poop, presents and prehistoric creatures in this festive feast!
