Childrens' bOOks for the Yulemas Holidays

Oh, do We LoVe bOOks around here!
I will post frequently about bOOks, treasures that they are. 
I can't remember a time when I didn't read....
from ding~turn the page~ disney books, 
to school chapter books, 
to the LIBRARY! 
What an interesting tale it would be if I took all the snippets of books I remember and put them together in One book! hmmm...
Naturally, The Man and I have passed this LoVe 
on to the LiTTLe Renters 
{ok, the kids} 
and Our books are breeding faster than mice! 
So its only right that we indulge in just as many HOLIDAY bOOks~

Here is Our at~this~moment Collection of Yulemas Spirit and Weaved Words, some would call stories:

Vintage, as in, Mine, from the early 70s ~

*Frosty the Snowman

*The Santa Claus Book

*The After~Christmas Tree{'92}
{great story of what to do with the Tree after the Holidays. Teaches how to give back.}

 ok, it just isn't the Holidays if there isn't a Holiday theme coloring/craft book. These are the best for stuffing those stockings; or to bring along when doing those MANY Holiday travels.

 These 3 are My Favorites. 

*The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus  
{by the brilliant creator of The Wizard of Oz, 
L. Frank Baum..notice the well worn copy!}

*The 12 Bugs of Christmas, a pop~up bOOk 
{Girl Sugar Plum's favorite}

*Russell's Christmas Magic
{Can I just tell You that Russell ROCKS! 
check out His other books too.}

There's some Classic
There's some Traditional :
*A Charlie Brown   
*The Twelve Days of  
*Madeline's Christmas

and some newer ones:

 *The Worst Best Christmas Pageant Ever

                           *Holly the Christmas Fairy 
                           *One Enchanted Christmas

                           *Finding Christmas

                           *Auntie Claus

                           *Stories of Santa

Ahhh, bOOks.  

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.

TV.  If kids are entertained by two letters, imagine the fun they'll have with twenty-six.  Open your child's imagination.  Open a book.
