A Holiday Picture Book Sampler
by Annie Cronin Romano
The holiday season has arrived. When my children were young, one of our favorite activities to do was cuddling on the couch reading holiday picture books. Sometimes there were old favorites; other times they were the latest arrivals at our local library or bookshop. This post is a mix of holiday classics and newer arrivals to the shelves. Hopefully you'll find a few titles to add to your "must read" list (links are included with the cover images). Please share your favorite holiday picture books in the comments!

You've chosen some lovely books. "Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree" was a fav with my K2 class. I've read some oe your other suggestions & I certainly will try to read the ones I'm not familiar with.

Thanks for great suggestions, Annie! I Love Star Bright by Alison McGhee and Peter Reynolds. This year Mortimer's Christmas Manger by Karma Wilson had me laughing out loud.
