Holiday Books

Reading the Season by Rebecca Howard

Last year I started a tradition with my (then) 2-year-old niece, Scarlett. Her Christmas Eve gift from us would be a new pair of pajamas, hot chocolate, and 1 or 2 seasonal stories for bedtime.  I wanted to give her a tradition that she could always associate with warmth, family, and reading.  I had a wonderful time exploring all of the holiday picture books last year—many of which I remembered from my own childhood.
