The holiday season is nearly upon us, and one way to kick it off is to give your kids’ bookshelves a little holiday refresh (our favorite method of decorating!). Putting out the holiday books will surely get everyone for the festivities that follow, and reading together is a great way to help young kids begin to understand all the pomp and circumstance that surrounds holidays.

Many families adore books adore Santa, while others prefer to be a Santa-free fam. What works for you is wonderful and there is undoubtedly a book that is the perfect companion for your child.
