We’re still getting Christmas organized, and I’m jumping in with another fun read from my Great Books for BIG Kids list today! The holiday season is super busy, but when kids get out of school for Christmas vacation they’ll have a lot of down time.
Take time every day to read to your kids, whether or not they’re in school that day! Reading EVERY day shows kids that reading is a normal part of life, just like eating and playing outside! When you only read on school nights, do you know what reading is in your child’s eyes? Homework. That’s not cool. Read every day.
Books Kids Should Read on Christmas Vacation
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
I love reading classic books to my kids that inspired Walt Disney and his Imagineers to create the best loved Disney movies and Disney Parks attractions! Although it wasn’t a huge hit, Disney’s Treasure Island movie (1950) is fun to watch. Even better: Muppet Treasure Island!
I always make my kids read the book before they watch the movie—it’s better for their imaginations if they don’t already have the cast, setting, and ending from the movie in their heads when they read the book.
