What My Children Are Reading


Merry Christmas Eve! I wanted to share a few more of the Christmas books we've been enjoying, as well as one Chanukah book we read last year and got out of the library once again this year.

First up is A Blue's Clues Chanukah by Jessica Lissy. This is a cute children's book featuring Blue and Joe and the other characters from Blue's Clues who celebrate Chanukah at Orange Kitten's house. It introduces kids to latkes, dreidels and other activities and traditions of the holiday. This book does not, however, tell the story of why Chanukah is celebrated or what it is. It's pretty simplistic but young kids who like Blue will enjoy it.

The next book I'll mention is Minerva Louise on Christmas Eve by Janet Morgan Stoeke. I love Minerva Louise books so was thrilled to see this one on the shelf at the library. In this story, Minerva, the silly chicken, gets quite confused by the Christmas decorations and the strange farmer falls through the well on top of the house and then starts putting things in her farmers' socks! It's a very cute story for Christmas.

In Four Friends at Christmas by Tomie dePaola, Mr. Frog has slept through Christmas every year, so this year, he wants to celebrate. He tries to stay away but ends up falling asleep for a bit on Christmas Eve. When he wakes, he's all alone and he thinks he may have missed Christmas, but his friends make sure he has a great first Christmas.
