Christmas Books – My favourite artwork.

In this post you will find my three favourite artwork books for Christmas.

A Christmas Story by Brian Wildsmith. Who followed Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem? The shepherds tending their flocks nearby, the wise men–and also Rebecca, Mary and Joseph’s young neighbor. With his richly detailed paintings, glowing vibrant colors and shining gold, Wildsmith gives readers a fresh vision of the familiar Christmas story.


Book A Christmas Story 2

Book A Christmas Story 3


The Night Before Christmas written by Clement C. Moore and illustrated by Eric Puybaret. The much-loved classic Christmas poem is brought beautifully to life in this gorgeous new picture book, sure to bring visions of sugarplums to everyone’s head. With dreamy, magical artwork by Eric Puybaret.

The Night Before Christmas


The First Christmas by Jan Pienkowski. Stunning silhouettes by Jan Pienkowski, the master of dramatic design, bring to life the story of the very first Christmas. With words from the King James bible, this is a truly classic and beautiful book to be treasured.




Beautiful and stunning artwork for Christmas. I also found these wonderful colouring pages on Jan Pienkowski’s website which have the added bonus of the written word on the page and all the children in my groups took some home for Christmas colouring.






Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
