Three New Christmas Picture Book Purchases

One of the downsides of having older kids and working in a middle school is the lack of picture book reading that I get to do.  I've tried to find some new Christmas books this year and actually sat down to read them.  Two of these three are definitely for a younger crowd, but all are delightful. 

Dinosaur Christmas! by Penny Dale - is colorful and cute. Rhyming text tells the story of dinosaurs who help make Christmas happen.  The end pages provides pictures with the names of dinosaurs (in the front) and pictures with vehicle names in the back.  This would be perfect for the PK-1 crowd.

One Wild Christmas by Nicholas Oldland -I love this series by Oldland and this is a cute Christmas story about Bear, Moose and Beaver who have forgotten about getting a Christmas tree - and then set out on the search for the perfect one. That's a hard task....especially when they can't agree on anything.  

Everybody's Tree by Barbara Joosse  - this is another cute picture book for the primary (Pre-K) population.  Rhyming text shares the story of a young boy who picks a tree that grew from a sapling that he planted to a large Christmas tree that is eventually part of a town's holiday celebration.  

I am still looking for more Christmas book to enjoy this holiday season including some adult fiction titles.  Maybe because of a global pandemic I am turning to comfort reads and enjoying these sweet stories.

These look sweet and fun. Now that my granddaughters are 6, 6 and 8, we seem to purchase fewer and fewer of these gems. I'll still be sure to browse that section of the library when I am able to. The chapter books are cute but, I miss the fun illustrations.
