8 Christmas Stories Your Child Should Read

ParentCircle

Right from the time humans began roaming on Earth, we began writing stories. The numerous cave paintings found in different parts of the world attest to this fact.

And more than anyone else, it is children who love to listen to stories. Just imagine how boring childhood would be without the magical world of stories to step into.

While children listen to stories to entertain themselves, they also derive many other benefits. According to Paul Zak, director of the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies at Claremont Graduate University, stories stimulate our emotions, help us connect with others and learn.

We have created stories around every occasion that is important to us, and Christmas is no exception.

Along with giving your child goodies on the occasion of Christmas, tell him a few stories as well. It will help you spend time together with your child and bond better as well.

And, if you don't know any stories, don't worry. Flip through the pages of our ClipBook to read a few Christmas stories.
