Great list request @LuvJulia! I love everything about the Christmas season, but I come from a Hannukah family, so I am turning this into an open list. What are people's favorites?

    I remember flipping through this book often throughout the holiday season and imagining what it was like to live in that idealistic pop-up world.

  13. Eloise at Christmastime by Kay Thompson
    22eabd95 8ecf 4a10 88db f5cdfe7ed920
    Don't kid yourself, Eloise was everyone's idol because she has an entire hotel at her disposal and is only six years old, for heaven's sake. She defines #goals.

    A quirky, chunky book that gives readers inside glimpses into who Santa really is. Translated from French with vibrant illustrations by the author. Great for kids and former kids.
