2017 Holiday Books
Sharing books anytime of year is one of my most favorite things to do. I am especially pleased when I can share quality holiday books. My children and I had our favorites which we read year after year which is a great tradition but it also can become comfortable. I always kept a watchful eye out for new books to mix in with the old standbys so as not to miss something great.
Now that my kids are grown, I continue to seek out new and special holiday books to share with my friends, family and Library patrons. Here are a few of my favorites published this year.

An endearing tale about a little girl and her late night adventure with a lost reindeer. The beautiful illustrations were the highlight of this heartwarming tale for me.
|By Martha Brockenbrough|
A sentimental book about a child learning that Santa Claus is not real, but the spirit of Santa Claus is! A fun way to welcome children who are questioning to "Team Santa".
|Adapted by the Metropolitan Museum of Art|
For families seeking a more traditional approach, this biblical telling of the Christmas Story is accompanied by medieval and Renaissance paintings from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Gorgeous from cover to cover!
