These were our favorite Christmas and winter-themed books in Dolly’s Bookshelf this holiday season! (Find them on sale now and save them for next year!):

1. Jingle Paws by Margaret Wise Brown.  A smooth sounding rhyming book about the pet’s very own Santa Claus… Santa Paws! An easy and fun Christmas read. Vibrant yet subtle illustrations are beautiful to look at.

2. Baby Loves Winter!: A Lift-the-Flap Book (Karen Katz Lift-the-Flap Books) by Karen Katz. A fun lift the flap book to discover all of baby’s favorite winter things!

3. Clifford’s Christmas by Norman Bridwell. Clifford the big red dog might break the ice at the pond by trying to ice skate, but hey- he saves Santa! A perfect Clifford tale, just like you’d expect from Bridwell!

4. Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner. As a child I remember wondering what happened to my perfectly made snowman over night… Well this story finally solves the mystery! Great concept, really fun to read rhyming. A perfect book.

5. Christmas Mice (Little Golden Book) by Richard Scarry. A member of the Little Golden Book collection, this book is another classic from Scarry. Two nice are the first ones up on Christmas morning to check out everything Santa left for the family. Hope they leave the cute mice something too!

6. Christmas Peekaboo by DK Publishing. This is a touch and feel and lift the flap book, perfect for baby who is on the delightful peekaboo stage of babyhood. Book is bigger and pages are heavier, so it’s for a stronger baby to do themselves; that’s probably the only negative.

7. Peppa Pig: Peppa’s Christmas Wish by Neville Astley and Mark Baker. This 2-story book (and page of stickers!) is great fun if you are already a big fan of the Peppa Pig series! Peppa and George open their presents from Santa and play in the snow in these delightful stories.

8. Bear Stays up for Christmas by Karma Wilson. Poor bear’s hibernation is interrupted when his forest friends miss his at Christmastime and want his company! Can Bear stay up Til Christmas morning? This book is incredibly well-written: the concept is great and the author’s delivery is spot on. A must own.
