Literacy Corner: Great Kids Books for December
[Source: Kids Minds]
Our December finds are especially sweet, cozy, and memorable. From cookies to kindness, Christmas trees to family time, this month’s selections reflect the miracle of the season and the power of simple moments to become our life’s most treasured memories.
But it’s not just about Christmas. In December we also celebrate the birthdays of Walt Disney, Jane Austin, Beethoven, and Grace Hopper, as well as an array of smaller holidays (some of which you may not have known about!): New Year’s Eve, International Civil Aviation Day, Dewey Decimal System Day, The Day for the Abolition of Slavery, winter solstice, and of course Christmas, Kwanza, and Hanukkah. They all offer an opportunity to teach your kids about something or someone that doesn’t usually come up in day-to-day conversation. They’ll be informing our book choices as well, and will hopefully save you from Christmas overload!
