Guess what, everyone! It’s December! YAAAAAAAAY!
I absolutely love the winter holidays. When you enjoy food as much as I do, it’s impossible not to love this season! Hot cocoa, gingerbread, latkes, pie, cider… It really is the most wonderful time of the year!
With the cold outside, it’s also a perfect time to curl up with a hot drink and a cool book. (Har har har, aren’t I so clever? Or maybe I should say ho ho ho…)
Here’s our list of holiday book picks — including my personal recommendation, Penina Levina Is a Potato Pancake by Rebecca O’Connell. (Surprise, surprise, it involves food.)
And for some audio-visual excitement, check out these beauties:
First, a hilarious (in our opinion) book trailer we created for The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson:
And also, a delightful (at least, we think so) podcast all about holiday books — and also Christmas music shame, old fart shame, and sprinkles.
Still haven’t found the right holiday book for you? We also recommend:
- A Little House Christmas
- The Christmas Dolls and Molly’s Surprise
- Miracle on 34th Street — Did you know it’s a book too, and not just a movie?
Now if you’ll excuse me, there’s a peppermint hot chocolate with my name on it — which will soon be a peppermint hot chocolate with my stomach all around it. 😀
