It’s time to start thinking about the upcoming holidays, so I wanted to give everyone enough time to enjoy some brand new holiday books coming out this season. I have 3 great kids book coming from Sourcebooks Jabberwocky to review for you today! Holiday Heroes Save Christmas written by Adam Wallace and pictures by Shane Clester, Miracle on 34th Street, A Storybook Edition of the Christmas Classic by Valentine Davies and pictures by James Newman Gray, One Snowy Day by Diana Murray and Diana Toledano.
Holiday Heroes Save Christmas written by Adam Wallace and pictures by Shane Clester
This book is just plain fun to read. We start the book with a profile of the heroes in this story and Santa Claus is the first one up. We learn that his catchphrase is It’s go-ho-ho time!, he dislikes spoiled milk and one of his strengths is being an excellent hugger. The other characters in this story include; the Tooth Fairy, the Witch, the Easter Bunny, and the Leprechaun and we get to see all of their profiles to learn more about them. The story involves Santa being unable to do his job this Christmas and he must depend on the other Holiday Heroes to help him out. The problem is that they all do things their own special way and that’s not the way that Santa does it. You will have fun reading how everyone comes to a solution and makes Christmas possible.

This book features beautiful illustrations to help tell the classic Christmas story of Santa Claus. One of my favorite illustrations is where Kris is showing Susan the art of making monkey noises. No matter how many times you have read the story or watched the movie, you will find new excitement with this presentation of the story that is going to appeal to both kids and adults alike.
One Snowy Day by Diana Murray and Diana Toledano
Of the 3 books here, this is my favorite. This is a book that kids are going to learn to repeat along with you because the rhyming text flows so nicely. The story is told by counting and it doesn’t just go from 1 to 10 – it actually counts backward as well. So even if your kids think that counting from 1 to 10 is easy, they can practice their numbers in reverse to reach the end of the story. The illustrations are so cute and detailed, and as you might guess from the cover, the puppy steals the show. This is a book you will be reading over and over all winter long. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
