This audio production gathers together in one hilarious volume the gems of autobiographical humor that Jean Shepherd drew upon to create this enduring film.

So if you love the movie, then this audio book is a great addition to your digital library for this holiday season.

how the grinch stole christmasTop 4. "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" by Dr. Seuss

Consistently rated as one of the best Christmas stories for kids, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" was published nearly 60 years ago and still remains one of the most-loved holiday stories. The audiobook edition is read by the lovable Walter Matthau and clocks in at a short 12 minutes, making it a great choice for younger children. In the story, the Grinch, whose heart is two sizes too small, hates Who-ville's holiday celebrations, and plans to steal all the presents to prevent Christmas from coming. To his amazement, Christmas comes anyway, and the Grinch discovers the true meaning of the holiday.

the best christmas pageant everTop 3. "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" by Barbara Robinson

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, now also a television movie, has been a favorite of children and their parents since 1972. This is a book that some families read aloud every year during Christmas season as a tradition. As C.J. Critt's spirited narration captures the lively and outrageous spin that the Herdmans put on the Nativity scene, listeners will delight in this unusual and refreshing interpretation of Christmas. It is a good pick for that multi-generational car because the youngest to the oldest in your group can enjoy this story. It is only a couple of hours in length.

when sant fell to earthTop 2. "When Santa Fell to Earth" by Cornelia Funke

This audiobook is read by the author, Cornelia Funke who hails from Germany. Although her English is outstanding every now and then, there is a wisp of German accent in the narration. However, this makes the story all that more charming and gives it a bit of a European flair. It tells the story of Twinklestar the reindeer and Santa's mission to save Christmas from the Grinch-like Gerold Geronimus Goblynch. A little under three hours in length, both young children and their parents will be entertained as they listen to the ways Santa tries to save the holiday.

a christmas carolTop 1. "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens

This 19th-century Christmas classic written by Charles Dickens in time for the 1843 holiday season sold out its initial printing of 6,000 copies in one day. It remains Dicken's most widely read and best-loved work, guaranteed to warm and uplift with the simplicity of its message and the depth of its honest truths. It's now is available in dozens of versions, including both unabridged and abridged formats. It's worthy of spending an hour or three listening to the book with the whole family and kids to get into the Christmas spirit. Besides, there's even a radio play by cinematic legend Orson Welles!
