Books for Christmas....

We are in a Christmas book frenzy here.  I've been pulling off the shelf and currently have around thirty more Christmas books on hold at the library. Levi is the perfect age for snuggling up with picture books and it never fails as soon as I crack a spine, the big kids come too. A few we're reading from the shelf this year are...

The Animals' Christmas Carol by Helen Ward
Cranberry Christmas by Wende and Harry Devlin
An Early American Christmas by Tomie dePaola
Christmas Tapestry by Patricia Polacco
