Christmas Books For Intermediate & Middle School Readers

Guest Author - Paula Laurita

Many times we see lists of Christmas picture books. The books Christmas here feature themes for patrons in fifth - eighth grade.

  • A Crime for Christmas, by Caolyn Keene
    This mystery teams super teen slueths Nancy Drew, Joe and Frank Hardy. New York to catch a couple of cat burglars, who they're sure are about to try to steal the crown jewels of Sarconne from a museum. There are bright lights, big city, and a fancy dinner at the UN.
  • The Christmas Spurs, by Bill Wallace
    When you're a big brother you don't cry, no matter how scared you are. And I'm scared. My little brother, Jimmy, is sick. All I want for Christmas is for him to get well.
    Santa seems to be listening when we get Buck, the best horse ever! I get spurs, and Jimmy gets a new cowboy hat, a real Stetson. He's so happy it almost makes us forget...untilJimmy's in the hospital again. I try to act big and strong. But I feel angry and sad, until the miracle happens...on an unforgettable Christmas day...
  • The Princess Present: A Princess Diaries Book, by Meg Cabot
    Mia would give all the jewels in Genovia for the perfect present. Every year, Princess Mia spends the holidays in Genovia with Grandmère. This year, she's looking forward to the most perfect Christmas ever: her boyfriend, Michael, and her best friend, Lilly, are coming to Genovia, too.
  • Bartholomew's Passage: A Family Story for Advent, by Arnold Ytreeide
    Day by day through the Advent season, you and your family can prepare for Christmas by reading Bartholomew's spellbinding story. Follow him from when Roman soldiers destroy his village and disperse his family, through his enslavement to a tyrannical master and his escape with his new friend, Nathan, to his reunion with his family, and a wonderful climax in Bethlehem. Along the way Bartholomew makes a new pal, Jotham, whom many readers have grown to love in Jotham's Journey. This family Christmas story and devotional includes a portion of the story-always a cliffhanger-for every day of Advent and for Christmas day, reflections for family devotions, and ideas for family Advent customs.
