“It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.”
~ W. T. Ellis

Families thrive on special moments and memories, the kind that are shared and made together. Creating family traditions is an important part of a child’s life, helping them to feel connected and important. One of the most simplest family traditions is reading a book together. Many families enjoy reading the same Christmas books each year to announce the arrival of the “Christmas Spirit”; others enjoy the act of introducing a new holiday tale to their library each year; and even more magical is choosing a holiday book to donate to a child in need, because after all … the holiday season is about giving.

Christmas is a special time and calls for special stories. I am sure you will find the magic you are looking for in these wonderful books.
