In Praise of Christmas Read-Along Record Books
“You’ll know it’s time to turn that page when you hear this sound…”
It just wouldn’t be Christmas without the Christmas stories! And while good old fashioned storybooks are all well and good, there was a time when publishers produced books with vinyl records enclosed.
They were an immersive an magical experience—from the first crackle of the needle finding its groove, to the narrator introducing the story, to the actors and sound effects bringing you into an imaginary world.
Sure, there are TV specials and movies and podcasts and storybook apps, but for that multi-sensory nostalgic Christmas feeling, I’ll always favor this Christmas classic.
You can hear your favorite stories brought to life
Or experience your favorite characters in new ways
Or discover new Christmas stories
They’re a good excuse to keep a turntable around

It’s fun to scour thrift stores and used bookstores and eBay to find new Christmas read-along record books to add to your collection. Happy reading / listening!
