Yesterday we talked about our favorite autumn + holiday books. Today, it’s all about the kids! These are personal favorites in our little family. These regularly make the rounds during the holidays, and I love knowing these are the stories my children will look back on with nostalgia when they are grown ups. While it’s not an extensive list, these are a few of our standards and I hope they spur you on to grab your own holiday books!
