A Library ADVENTure

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (available in Easy Reader and our fave, Chapter Book)
Merry Christmas, Strega Nona
A Charlie Brown Christmas 
Santa's Favorite Story (my son John's favorite)
A Christmas Memory
The Best Christmas Book Ever
Little House Christmas Treasury
The Christmas Mystery (a family read-aloud favorite)
Letters From Father Christmas (fa la la la la la love this book) 

For a bibliophile, there just isn't a better time of year than now for reading, especially to your children. And the library carries the classics as well as the current beauties, like these:

Christmas with First Ladies (I'm dreaming of a White House Christmas)
Comfort and Joy (my fave for me, just me and only me)
Home For The Holidays (for teens, but I loved it) 

Merrick recommended this as a family read-aloud. Can't wait to dive in.

I'm unabashedly nutty for this book:

Nicholas wants me to read this each and every Christmas:

Tomorrow, or maybe Wednesday, I'll feature some of my favorite cookbooks paired with music, so you can repeat the sounding joy in your kitchen while blessing your family with fabulous food.  Please share your favorite Christmas time reads, I'd love to read them along with you. Visit your library today!

I love Christmas books! :) Animal ones especially. The Christmas Day Kitten by James Herriot has been a favorite around my house for a long time.

We read the Best Christmas Pageant Ever together not too long back! My oldest loved Wished for Wings when he was little!

We have a large basket of Christmas books that comes out for Holiday reading. There are so many fun holiday books!
