Holiday Books For Kids
One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is to sit and read holiday books with my kids. Every year we pick a new book to read together while sipping hot chocolate with marshmallows.
This year we have gifted these 3 wonderful holiday books for kids. Now that Esuun can read she is able to join in on all the family fun we have with our annual holiday book reading.
- Hanukkah Magic of Nate Gadol

Pick a Pine Tree
By: Patricia Toht – Ages 3 to 7
A Hardcover picture book (featuring a full-page pop-up Christmas Tree inside). This book tells the tale of what it is like after getting the tree home. It’s time for the rituals of decorating, digging out boxes jam-packed with ornaments and tree trimmings, stringing tinsel, and, at long last, turning on those twinkling lights.
This story celebration of family, friends, and the holiday season is as merry as the tradition it depicts. Not to mention the 3D pop-up tree is gorgeous and Esuun’s favorite part of the book. It’s the perfect size for stocking stuffer gifts and features Retro illustrations that capture the festive glow of the season.
