Good Night Hanukkah is not your parent’s alphabet story. With only a handful of words per page, you get words not usually seen, such as “Intrigued used for I” and images of bears in creative Outrageous Outfits. Along with lovely, bright (but not overpowering) and textured illustrations, this is a an anytime gift giving keepsake book. A delightful treat for the eye and ear. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

A delightful story about the true meaning of Christmas and friendship. Lucy Fleming’s bright illustrations show friends, Esme and Bear, finding a present not theirs. But when they find the recipient, they see she does not have a single gift but the one in their hands. Or does she? Afterall, Santa just might have saved the best gift for last. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Published: Sterling Children's Books - August 6th, 2019

This not your parents Goldilocks story. It has a Halloween/scary twist with the beloved items still all there: too hot alpha-bat stew; hard beds, soft chairs and one sleepy ghoul. But this time, things do not end as you think they will. Our Family of Monsters will have you recalling The Munsters with their multi-monster family (one Frankenstein Dad, one Mummy Mommy, one little ankle-biter baby and one lonely little Zombie Girl). ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Published: Candlewick - September 10th, 2019

A fresh, clever telling of how Santa and eight reindeer came into a special partnership. There is an old-school classic feel to the text and the beautiful artwork, rich in colors and detail, helps move the story along. These frame-worthy paintings bring to life a story of how eight reindeer helped Santa save Christmas (and why Dasher comes first in the poem). ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
