Thanks to everyone who told me about their favorite Halloween books. It brought back some great memories and inspired me to seek out new books.
Now I'm curious to hear more holiday favorites. What books did you read as a child, or have you recently discovered that are terrific for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Christmas?
There are lots and lots of lists of holiday favorites in books, articles and library catalogs but I love to hear personal recommendations from people who have really fallen in love with a book.
I know, I know, it's WAY too early to think about all these holidays, but I'm a bookseller and I have to plan ahead. Any mention of your favorite books would be hugely appreciated.
