How many shopping days til Christmas?

I might be rushing the season a bit, but here are some Christmas books for the kids you love.

DINOSAUR VS. SANTA by Bob Shea. Disney/Hyperion, 2012.

A little dinosaur prepares for Christmas with a letter to Santa, gifts for his parents, and decorations for the tree. With lots of ROARing, this is sure to be a hot as a read aloud or read along. <530>

SANTA ON THE LOOSE by Bruce Hale with illustrations by Dave Garbot. Harper, 2012.

Someone at the North Pole has stolen Santa's toys. He has suspects, but it is up to the reader to solve the mystery. The inside pages, all double page spreads look a little like WHERE'S WALDO? in format. However, even young readers should be able to spot Santa and the clues he is holding. Match the clues to the suspects' photos, and the mystery will be solved. <531>

And here is a look at one of the double page spreads.
