Believe it or not, the holidays are right around the corner! What better way to celebrate than with some holiday picture books to get you in the festive mood?
We made a list --- and we checked it twice --- so that only the best of the best holiday books are on our shelves, no matter how you celebrate! Whether you like traditional stories about Christmas, like THE NUTCRACKER, or are looking for a fun spin on Christmas, like in THE BIGGEST SMALLEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT, there's sure to be something on our shelf that will warm your heart on those frosty winter days. For those of us who like a grand adventure, SHMELF THE HANUKKAH ELF takes readers on a mission to find out why children are missing from Santa's list only to uncover Hanukkah. There are also perfect books here for nonfiction fans such as BEST IN SNOW which allows animal fans to see beautiful pictures of animals in the snow. Or, if you like a more factual approach, WONDERFUL WINTER: All Kinds of Winter Facts and Fun brings out the science behind snow (and allows you to make some cool crafts while you're at it). Finally, after all this holiday madness is over for the year, we can sit back and relax with Santa, who is taking a well deserved break himself in SANTA'S ELEVEN MONTHS OFF.
