As the holidays are getting closer your kids may be getting excited about Christmas. What better way to channel that excitement then to use that excitement to encourage reading. Pelican publishing offers a large selection of high quality children's holiday books. Not only do they have Christmas books they also have a selection of Hanukkah books.
The book I was most excited for was "Cop's Night Before Christmas" my father, Chris' grandfather is a police officer so it spoke to my heart. He always has worked Christmas eve and usually Christmas day. This book has colorful illustrations that show and tell the story of the things a cop does the night before Christmas. I can't wait to have Chris' grandpa get to read him this book. I hope we can make it a new family tradition.
If your child loves pirates, they will love the book "The Great Pirate Christmas Battle" With each turn of the page they can meet Cap'n McNasty and his crew. They can see the pirates steal Christmas but they won't get away with it for long! Join Santa and his crew as they battle the pirates and take back Christmas. Keep reading along to find out the surprise at the end of the book.
Are Dinosaurs more your kids style? Check out " Dinosaur's Night Before Christmas" and supersize them under the tree with another great dinosaur book "You may just be a Dinosaur" The full color illustrations take you on a journey where Christmas eve and dinosaurs meet! See if your child can guess what they will do next.
The part that I love about "You May Just be a Dinosaur" are the dinosaur facts inside the book. So your child can enjoy the story and learn more about dinosaurs in a fun way.
