What Do I Read Next?: Holiday Edition

If you haven't shared a holiday titles for CORA Diversity Roll Call, please do or share them here. In the meantime, check out these holiday titles:

A Wish For Wings That Work by Berkeley Breathed recommended by su magoo.

Elijah's Angel by Michael Rosen. I wrote about this at Black-Eyed Susan's for CORA Diversity Roll Call.
It's a story about friendship and culture. It's about holidays and sharing. For me and my girls, it was also an introduction to folk art.

The Very Special Baby by Carol Woodward. Zetta posted slide show of this out of print title for Diversity Roll Call.
I wanted to share my favorite Xmas picture book. My mother bought The Very Special Baby to share with us (and her kindergarten class); it was published in 1968 but is now out of print.

The 12 Days of Christmas: A Pop-Up Celebration by Robert Sabuda. This is another family book I've shared with my girls

I haven't read but I did pick up the following titles for Ramadan:

The White Nights of Ramadan by Maha Addasi
A Party in Ramadan by Asma Mobin-Uddin

On Hanukkah by Cathy Goldberg Fishman

Chinese New Year:
Moonbeams, Dumplings & Dragons by Nina Simonds & Leslie Swartz

Winter Solstice:
The Shortest Day: Celebrating The Winter Solstice by Wendy Pferrer

Don't you just hate when these wonderful (old) books go out of print! Not fair!

Just discovered your blog. What a wonderful resource. A winter themed book my family enjoys is Snow on Snow on Snow.
