There’s something about Christmas that makes me reminisce about being a kid–or even doing my best to recreate favorite holiday moments (read: lots and lots of paper crafts).
In honor of that childlike wonder inspired by the season (and all the little ones in our lives!), we’re giving away five great kids books, all of which beckon back to picture book favorites:
Seven long-lost Dr. Seuss stories appear for the first time in The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories, including a story of a duck named McKluck. Originally featured in black and white in 1950 and 1951, the stories have been colorized for the new book. (Ages 6 and up)
Little Bunny and the Magic Christmas Tree by David Martin (check out our Meet the Illustrator interview with Valeri Gorbachev) finds the littlest member of a bunny family on an unforgettable Christmas Eve adventure. (Ages 2 and up)
The Jumanji 30th Anniversary Edition by Chris Van Allsburg takes readers back to the Caldecott Medal-winning story of a mystical board game. This special edition contains a CD of actor Robin Williams reading the timeless tale. (Ages 6-8)
From Mercer Mayer, the author/illustrator behind the beloved Little Critter series, comes Mercer Mayer’s Little Monster Fun and Learn Book. Kids will learn their ABC’s, counting and much more with Mayer’s Little Monster. (Ages 3-8)
TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the name of your favorite picture book.
