A DOZEN FAVORITE CHILDREN’S CHRISTMAS BOOKS
Here are a dozen favorite children’s Christmas books. Many are old classics that have been around for a long time. Several are newer. One is a new book this year. Iggy Loo was just released earlier this month and it promises to become a favorite children’s story time book, not only during the holidays, but all through the year. (Come back next week, when we feature an interview with author Maria Ashworth!)
