It’s the holiday season once more and you know what that means—holiday reading fun! December is all about family, miracles, and giving those you love presents.

Books make marvelous gifts that you can open again and again. To quote Cousin Eddie from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, “Clark, that’s the gift that keeps on givin’ the whole year.”

As a Pre-K/Kindergarten teacher and a mom, I’ve spent the past 28 years reading books to children. I’ve also given my fair share as a gift too. Along the way, I’ve discovered several special stories that I’d like to share with you.

I’ll list each holiday in sequential order (Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa).
