In thinking about holiday picture books for kids, I quickly came upon a realization: it seems that most major children’s book characters also have a Christmas / holiday book! Llama Llama, Bear, Nancy, David, Madeline, Eloise…and that’s just the beginning.
I have a lot of these in my school library collection, as they’re crazy-popular with students. In thinking about which ones I wanted to highlight, I had a mad idea: feature all of them…just not at the same time.
And so, for the next four days, I share five holiday picture books featuring a popular children’s book character. And on Friday, I’ll share my favorite.
Oh, and a side note: Mo Willems, it seems, hasn’t fallen prey to this trend (at least yet). His popular Pigeon is not found in any holiday story. Neither are Piggie and Elephant. Hmm. Interesting.
