Starting the Christmas season, nothing better than reading some Christmas books to make them more familiar with this season.
Fancy Nancy: Splendiferous Christmas
Nancy's psyched about the holidays until her ultra-fancy tree topper breaks. Can the ultimate girly-girl learn to love plain old DIY tree decorations? As always, the detailed, sparkly illustrations make this a fave among the princess set.
Lovers of Eric Carle's classic The Very Hungry Caterpillar will recognize the same iconic collage illustrations in this wintry tale about a farmer who dreams about a white Christmas. Like Caterpillar, the pages hold extra interest for young readers, with cutouts and counting.
The Polar Express
This tale of children hopping on a night train to visit Santa at the North Pole is pure holiday magic, and the book comes with a DVD of the story read by Liam Neeson--ideal for holiday car rides or to help excited kids drift off on Christmas Eve.
