<h6 class="uiStreamMessage"><span style="font-size:12px;"><span class="messageBody">Any one have any holiday book suggestions (my son will be 3yo in a couple months) that talk about "the reason for the season", like giving, volunteering, family, etc.? We're not religious but do celebrate Christmas. Would like something to read to him to help teach him that the holidays aren't just about getting presents. Ya know? Also, am wanting to explain Santa to him in a way that makes him more of a symbol of giving, etc. than making him sound like a real person....</span></span></h6>
