Books That Make You Want to Celebrate the Holidays in Many Ways

The holidays mean different things to different people. Year after year, while we celebrate many of the same traditions, we can also learn at any time about history, the true meaning of giving, and inclusiveness. Such messages can be especially poignant for children.

These four guests have all written holiday-themed books with a special message. Thus, we’re going to have a good time here -- in this special holiday Books That Make You Show:

We have Maria Alexander, author of “Snowed”, the first book in the “Bloodline of Yule” Trilogy, among many other horror and comedy crime stories.

There’s also Gina Cavalier and Jeanette DePattie, who collaborated for “How I Became Santa Claus”, a book that allows us to see what it’s like to be Santa.

We also have Lee Wind, author of “Red and Green and Blue and White,” illustrated by Paul O. Zelinsky, which is based on the true story of a Jewish and Christian family who helped to bring a community together for the holidays.
