it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Though neither of these Christmas books are new, they are certainly perfect for holiday reading for the family. Don't forget THE POLAR EXPRESS, DECEMBER, AUNTIE CLAUS, HERSCHEL AND THE HANUKKAH GOBLINS, and the other gifts of reading for the holidays.

Fancy Nancy is distraught in SPLENDIFEROUS CHRISTMAS (Harper 2009) by Jane O'Connor with illustrations by Robin Glasser. Her beautiful tree top ornament crashes and breaks. But Grandpa comes to the rescue and makes Christmas perfect again. <657>

Clement C. Moore's "A Visit from St. Nicholas" continues to see incarnations each year. Here is Mary Englebreit's interpretation in THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS (Harper 2002) with elves from Santa's workshop gracing the end papers and jellybeans sitting in reindeer antlers. Kids will enjoy finding fairies, elves, jellybeans, and lots of other items in these illustrations. <658>
