Whether it’s from Santa, Mom and Dad, or other family members and friends, the lucky kids who receive these books will enjoy story time with their loved ones all year long.

Here are some of our favorite titles to inspire your little ones this holiday season:

Jeannie’s Crab Lake Christmas by David Mulford. Ages 4-8
This heartwarming story by former US Ambassador David Mulford, releases December 1. For the last 27 years, David’s Christmas gift to his wife, Jeannie, no matter where they’ve been in the world, has been a new story with their home-away-from-home, Crab Lake, Wisconsin, as the setting. The love from this almost 30-year tradition is poured into every page and it transports readers back to the tales we loved as children. With its touching illustrations and themes of tradition and holiday spirit, this book is sure to become a classic.

The Festive Frolics of Panda and Owl by Frank Lewis Rotman (pen-name Frank Lewis). Ages 7-9
What started as a romantic gesture between the author (Owl) and his wife of one year, Jody (Panda) has transformed into a wonderfully whimsical tale of two best friends who learn, laugh, and celebrate life hand-in-hand. “When my wife and I began dating, I told her I was going to write a children’s book for her,” Lewis says. “I would ask her to come up with a theme for each chapter. And before every special occasion or holiday, I would present her with a new chapter. So this is my attempt to be romantic.” The two are inseparable in fiction and in real-life, and you’ll want to become their “bestest” friend, too. The Festive Frolics of Panda and Owl has a claim to fame…it will be the only children’s book featured in the 2018 Golden Globes Red Carpet Style Lounge.

The Oyster’s Secret by Traci Dunham. Ages 4-8
This sweet story follows the unassuming Mr. Oyster as his sea creature friends boast about their beauty and talents. However, Mr. Oyster is not bothered one bit, because he has a secret gift of his own! After being shown all the amazing talents his underwater friends possess, the oyster opens his mouth to reveal the beauty he holds inside—a large pearl.

Little Worm: A Story About Worry by Laura Ann Elpers-Pierce. Ages 3-7
This story is about a young worm that has long planned that today was the day he would run a mile in the bright, shining sun. But, when he wakes up on the morning of his greatest achievement, he looks out the window only to find the sky gray, with rain falling harder every minute. He must learn to handle his disappointment and nerves while finding an alternative activity, and, eventually, he decides to run anyway! As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Registered Play Therapist, Pierce encourages open dialogue about emotions between children and their caretakers.

Benjamin Birdie’s First Flight by Michael Dotsikas. Ages 4-8
Benjamin Birdie encourages kindness and compassion to overcome life’s challenges. Elephants, giraffes, lemurs, and more work together to get you off the forest floor! All of these animals have one thing in common: they all try to help Benjamin Birdie back to his nest when he falls from the top of his tree.

The Little Copper Penny by Stephenie Barker. Ages 3-8
The Little Copper Penny promotes the concept of self-confidence and the importance of knowing your worth – because everyone is worth something! It not only teaches kids the basics of making change and the monetary value of quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies but also demonstrates the important opportunity parents (and grandparents) have to instill self-worth in their children.

The Sashi Series by Linda Greiner. Ages 3-10:
    Sashi, the Scared Little Sheltie
    Sashi Adopts a Brother
    Sashi and the Puppy Mill Girl
Linda Greiner first introduced us to Sashi in Sashi, the Scared Little Sheltie, in which Sashi started out misunderstood and abandoned. Winning the hearts of Anna and her mom, Sashi went on to find her “forever home,” and Greiner’s book went on to win gold in the Mom’s Choice Awards and Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards. In her second Mom’s Choice Awards gold-winning book, Sashi Adopts a Brother, Greiner continues Sashi’s story as Anna and her mom decide to foster other Shelties looking for their “forever homes.” The third book in the series, Sashi and the Puppy Mill Girl, continues the Mom’s Choice Awards gold-winning streak. It follows the story of Cinnamon, rescued from a puppy breeding mill. Sashi and her family teach little Cinnamon how to “be a pet” so she can be adopted by a forever family.

Cinco the Clinic Cat: Cinco, El Gato de La Clinica by Carol Brickell. Ages 4-12

A Backyard Birding Adventure: What’s in Your Yard? By Kermit Cummings. Ages 4-8
