Happy holiday reads!

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is spending time with family members. Occasionally, my family will go out and do something festive like pick out a Christmas tree or drive around the neighborhood looking at everyone’s decorations. But most of the time, we like to stay home by the fire and watch movies, play games, or read together. There’s nothing better than snuggling up with blankets and hot chocolate and listening to a great story! This Christmas, why not check out a few of these great reads to add to your family’s list of holiday traditions?
