Festive & Fun Holiday Reading List | The Milton Moms

My kids ADORE books, and holiday books are no exception. They are ever so special since we only bring them out once a year! We love reading the classics that I remember from my own childhood, but we really love a lot of the new books from our every day favorites-especially since the classics can be scary for littlest ones- I mean, the Grinch STEALS presents, and everyone is so mean to poor Rudolph! Here are some that we will be reading over and over in our house! What are your favorites?
