<p>That's a great list! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>AAK started a similar thread a few days ago, but also including adult reads:  <a href="http://www.mothering.com/community/forum/thread/1279505/favorite-holiday-reads-lets-make-a-list">http://www.mothering.com/community/forum/thread/1279505/favorite-holiday-reads-lets-make-a-list</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>You've reminded me about <em>The Snowman</em> by Raymond Briggs. I don't think it has been mentioned in either thread yet. </p>

<p>Thanks! I've added both of those. The other thread looks great, too - I guess I should have done a search!</p>

<p>I really liked <em>The Last Straw</em> - very nice illustrations and message.  We got it last year and it's disappeared.  I'm really hoping I packed it up with our Christmas stuff, as opposed to losing it somewhere. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also, we have a Christmas version of the <em>Bear Snored On</em> book (<em>Bear Stays Up for Christmas</em>) that's very cute and the girls like a lot. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>A more secular winter book that's beautiful is <em>Owl Moon</em> by Yolen.  Lovely story about a cold winter night going 'owling' with her father.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>We also have <em>The Shortest Day</em> which is about Winter Solstice and its history/traditions, including some projects in the back of the book (triangulating the angle of the sun etc.), a simple kids' book but very nice.</p>

<p>The <em>Velveteen Rabbit</em> is a favorite of mine too.  I do a holiday program in my Children's Room called How Toys Become Real where we read that story and each child brings their favorite stuffed animal and they also bring a new, unwrapped one to put in our Toys for Tots donation box.  <em>The Night Before Christmas</em> is another favorite and there are so many beautifully illustrated versions.  For our Night Before Christmas storytime we actually go to a local farm/nursery where they have reindeer.  We bundle up & read the story outside with hot chocolate and snacks & then go into the barn & each child gets to feed the reindeer an apple.  It's by far one of our patrons' favorite programs. </p>

<p>Sam and his mom make goodies for their neighbors and drop them off silently in the early morning to surprise them.  Very cute.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>For funny, my kids think Mooseltoe is hilarious.  <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FMOOSELTOE-First-Margie-Palatini%2Fdp%2FB003OH71A8%2Fref%3Dsr_1_3%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1290323739%26sr%3D1-3" rel="norewrite" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/MOOSELTOE-First-Margie-Palatini/dp/B003OH71A8/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1290323739&sr=1-3</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>And a third to add is "All you need for a snowman"</p>

<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I love many of the stories mentioned above, but sometimes the ones with lots of "meaning" get me teared up and I need something a little bit humorous or just simple.</p>

<p>I can't believe that I forgot to list <em>A Northern Nativity by</em> William Kurelek<i>.</i> He was a brilliant artist and this book is wonderful<i>.</i> It's especially good for anyone looking for a multicultural perspective. </p>

<p>Found two new ones (well, rediscovered one from my childhood too):</p>
<p> </p>
<p><em>The Angel of Mill Street</em> (Weller) - a sweet old family story of Christmas Eve, and a dog who saves an uncle - nice pictures.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><em>Star Mother's Youngest Child</em> (Moeri) - the one from my childhood.  Black and white drawings -- published in the 70's -- a great little story about Christmas and its traditions and giving (even when you don't have much if anything) - and a good reminder for the adult(s) reading it of what Advent and Christmas are really about.  I am going to see whether I can find a copy of this one, to add to our 'library.' [not specifically religious, a family who is not religious at all wouldn't have a problem with the book I don't think]</p>
