Christmas Break Books

A houseful of Christmas

I have to admit, when I first read this book, didn't think much of it. But the boy child seemed to like it so we read it again. It grew on me. Caused the lad to ask questions which I always appreciate.

Mog and the granny.

We got this book out because it's about a cat! It's actually a fun read about a cat and how she likes things to stay the same.

happy Christmas Ginger.

A simple book about a cat experiencing Christmas. One part made the lad laugh and say "why mommy, Why would the cat like cookies???"

If you were born a kitten

this book surprised me. and the lad would sit and listen as opposed to play and listen. he's often stick the thumb in his mouth too. Found that an interesting response. Talks about different ways that animals are when they are born.

Farm-Fresh Cats

I really just need to write a lapbook on this book. It's just a very fun read for a child to have. :)

So Many Ways to Defend Themselves

A non-fiction book about how animals defend themselves. Some things we knew, others were a complete surprise. Interesting read.

Camouflage by Kennon O'mara

We got this book out to go with the camouflage unit study that we continue to work though. Good book. Caused questions to be asked. had some good pictures in it as as well. Really showed the lad how white the artic hare and the artic fox where.

The Holly Hill Christmas Treasury

A good collection of stories, poems and more all about bunnies celebrating Christmas. The lad enjoyed it immensely.

The Golden Christmas Treasury

Can't say I liked this one as much. Neither did the lad. It had a couple of good stories in it, and poems that were fun, but that's about it.

The Christmas Cat

The lad liked this book and for the most part so did I. Decent read.

The Innkeeper's Daughter

I have to admit, I'm fussy with books that are Bible based... or at least bible story based. I didn't mind this book but found it a bit far-fetched and therefore couldn't really get into reading it beyond the once. Did lead to a good discussion with the lad about whether or not it was possible to have that kind of healing happen.

A visit from St. Nicholas and Santa Mouse too!

the mouse saved this story for the lad. :) Santa's not real mommy he said with a frown. Who's that mouse mommy? And so we read it. Not a bad book at all.

Bunny Christmas

An okay read, didn't read it beyond one or two times. he had a fondness for a couple other books more.

Waiting for Christmas Stories

Read it twice. Stories seemed not real to the lad, so he didn't much listen to them.

Snow Dog's Journey

The lad liked this book. Surprised me a bit that he did. he's not real big into dogs at this point, but this book he had a fondness for. Read it quite a few times. Always with different questions too.

The little reindeer

sometimes flights of fancy are just fun to read. And this one fit well with the season of sometimes pretend.


LOVES this book. Makes him laugh.

Daniel's Gift

Another sorta bible based story. Made the boy listen and think, so I liked that. He knew it wasn't a true story though. :)
