Day 1 of the 25 Days til Christmas: Curious George Christmas Carols

Start our the Christmas season by sharing traditional Christmas Carols with your children!

30 minutes of music and 10 Christmas Carols are shared on CD in this Curious George title! Lyrics to the ten traditional songs are provided, along with sections of the sheet music, set to an illustrated background that is typical and representative of Curious George illustrations.

Children will enjoy learning these classical Christmas carols and will appreciate a familiar character (Curious George), sharing the music and lyrics with them! It will likely spike an interest in your child that you typically wouldn't expect!

The ten Christmas Carols include:
  1. O Christmas Tree
  2. O Come, All Ye Faithful
  3. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
  4. We Three Kings
  5. I Saw Three Ships
  6. Deck the Hall
  7. O Little Town of Bethlehem
  8. The First Noel
  9. Silent Knight
  10. Good King Wenceslas
This is a great book to start out your holiday reading nights - children will love learning the songs and the actual lyrics to sing them throughout the remainder of the holiday season! This would be a great way to spend a "Family Night" and get in the holiday spirit! You could use this as an inspiration to learn Christmas carols and then spend one night closer to Christmas caroling about your neighborhood, at a local nursing home or even a hospital, with the hopes of brightening the spirits of those unfortunate enough to be spending the holidays away from home.
