What holiday books should I read with my second grader?


There are many fun books to get your child excited about the holiday! “The Polar Express ” by Chris Van Allsburg and “How the Grinch that Stole Christmas!” by Dr. Seuss are two great holiday classics. “Fletcher and the Snowflake Christmas” by Julia Rawlinson is a wintery tale that really captures the magic of the holidays with some of the most stunning illustrations I have ever seen in a picture book. Lastly, “The Spirit of Christmas” by Nancy Tillman is a beautiful story about what matters most during the holidays—spending time together with those we love.
