Do you have a child who LOVES books?
Are you looking for a few new books to add to your child’s library?
Who doesn’t LOVE a good book?! Books are the gateway to literature, reading, and language. Exposing children to books early on in their lives aids in their language development. Something as simple reading to your child will open up a whole world of learning for them!
As someone who has their own giant collection of children’s books, I’m here to tell you that your child can NEVER have too many books! Over the 18 years I taught young children (3 to 6 year olds), I collected so many children’s books that I have quite the collection! I still have them, even though I am no longer teaching in a classroom. I refuse to part with them; against the wishes of my husband; because they bring back so many awesome memories of children in my classroom over the years. That’s what books do; they bring so much joy and establish memories that stay with you a lifetime!
Are you looking for books to add to your classroom library or for your children at home for this holiday season? Well this Ultimate List of Holiday Books has you covered! The list consists of 30 books with everything from Winter, snow, Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. There are many classics on the list, as well as some new ones or some that may be unfamiliar to you as well. I wanted to have a good mix of books on the list to add some variety to the list. I hope you are able to get a hold of some of these great selections this holiday season! Oh, and by the way, books make GREAT gifts!
