Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Can you believe there are only THREE more sleeps until Christmas? I surely can't, but seeing as I can't argue with my calendar, I suppose it truly is. Our weather has finally caught up with the time of year (it's cold...well, Florida cold anyway...yay!), so it's a bit easier to get into the holiday spirit of things and with that, comes a wintery reading list perfect for the whole family.
It's time for the SIX PICTURE BOOKS OF CHRISTMAS! What's that? Why not TWELVE? Well, umm...first of all, there's not many days left before the holiday and I want you to enjoy the books, not blow through them like a winter storm. Second, that's the number I ran across this year review wise, so...that's the number I'm presenting. ^-^ Grab your elf shoes and throw on your Santa hats, it's time to dive into some holiday fun that will dazzle the eye and the heart.
A charming story that brings the Berenstain family back for a joyous holiday. Here, we find the siblings three about to make a snowman...but silk top hats, and carrot noses are old school; they want something different, but only just. Their little sister Honey provides the inspiration for what becomes an informal lesson on those heralds from above and the important roles they played in announcing the arrival of a certain someone so long ago. With an invitation to seek out other stories within the Bible for additional angelic reading, this is one cub friendly read that will keep the conversation rolling right through the holidays.
This one takes the classic carol of old and turns it into a kid-friendly, eye-catching peek-through read for the whole family. With every turn of the page, we're greeted by this adorable elf lad and lass, as more and more items are added to the visual list of what their "true love gave" to them. The cut outs allow the treasures to grow and grow until the grand finale converges in a colorful display of the who shebang!
