Christmas Play and Christmas Books

This morning we enjoyed going to a play along with about 100 members of our support group. The play was "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever", at the Progress Energy Performing Arts Center in Raleigh. We have enjoyed reading this book for many Christmases, and the play was a nice, but abbreviated, version of the story.
It's time to unpack my trunk of Christmas books and videos. I have a nice collection of picture books that we try to read through during the month of December. I'm always on the lookout for another good Christmas book to add to the collection. Some of my favorites are:

How The Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss
The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey by Susan Wojciechowski
Jacob's Gift by Max Lucado
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson
The Littlest Angel by Charles Tazewell
Alabaster's Song by Max Lucado
The Gift of the Magi by O Henry
The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsberg
A Cup of Christmas Tea by Tom Hegg
Saint Nicholas: The Real Story of the Christmas Legend by Julie Stiegemeyer
The Very First Christmas by Paul Maier

I know there are some good ones that I'm forgetting. I'll have to update this list once I get the books out.

I've unpacked our Christmas storybooks, too. Among those that you didn't list are some in my collection that you might like to add. Jan Brett's "Who's That Knocking on Christmas Eve?", and "The Wild Christmas Reindeer". I LOVE Jan Brett's illustrations, too. There is always so much to talk about if you look closely... in the borders, background, etc.
