Snuggle Up With a Story

The weather may be frightful, but new holiday books at GMPL are delightful!
Fa La La by Leslie Patricelli
Sing along as Baby gets prepared for Christmas.  Putting up a tree, singing carols, and making homemade gifts are all part of the season's charm.  A fun board book to share with little friends.


The Christmas Quiet Book by Deborah Underwood
This book helps us remember that Christmas can be a quiet, reflective time too.  The soft, muted colors and the gentle illustrations go perfectly with the words in this story.  The lovely animals in the book share different activities that require hushed tones and near silence to complete.  Getting ready for the holidays doesn't have to be loud and full of blinking lights.  If you enjoy this book, look for Underwood's other bestsellers, The Loud Book and The Quiet Book.
 A Pirate's Twelve Days of Christmas by Philip Yates
Ahoy, mateys!  Even pirates dream of receiving presents at Christmastime.  From cutlasses to mermaids and parrots in a palm tree, this story will have you singing with a Yo Ho Ho by the end.  The plucky, colorful pictures are a real treat just like the hot cocoa you can sip on while reading these gems.
