Season's Readings

During the month of December holidays are observed around the world.  At National Geographic Kids they list and discuss the Winter Celebrations of Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year's Day, Three Kings Day, and the Chinese New Year. At Education World those festivities listed are a little more extensive.  Saint Nicholas Day, Fiesta of Our Lady of Guadalupe, St. Lucia Day, Hanukkah, Christmas Day, Three Kings Day, Boxing Day, Kwanzaa, Omisoka, Yule and Saturnalia are included.

Over the years I have honored some of these with the students in my school libraries.  In that time my own personal collection of books specifically for December festivities has grown.  It looks as though next year a new book case is necessary.

In this short video the shelves are scanned to give you an idea of the titles in the collection.  The Padlet is a gathering of all the blog posts on particular books.  It's my Christmas wish for you to find a new title to use next year or perhaps to remember a special book.
