Happy December, Kidsreaders!

Thanksgiving is behind us (meaning you have to wait a whole year before more stuffing and green bean casserole…can you handle it?) but with Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa just around the corner, the holiday season is really just beginning.

In New York City this is pretty obvious --- the legendary Saks Fifth Avenue window display is finally up, the Rockefeller Center tree is lit above the skating rink, holiday markets have transformed many parks into what look like tiny tent villages and glittering lights make the fact that it gets dark at 4:45pm just a little more bearable.

This festive time of year got us thinking --- what if we celebrated a holiday dedicated to books with the same kind of energy?
