Holiday Books for Kids

With the holidays on the minds of many and the kids finding excitement in counting down the days, I find that I enjoy seeking out stories and books that are perfect for reading over the season! Recently I was sent a great selection of holiday books to share with my kids when I was sent a collection of books that can be found on Amazon’s independent publishing platforms!

We found that with each of the books, we get stories that are unique and help to bring families closer together over the holidays by doing so with a great selection of characters. The stories are great for not only building up that excitement for the season and holidays, but also great for building up those imaginations in the kids!

In fact, when we head to Amazon check out the selection self published children’s holiday books, we can find a variety of books to choose from and get them not only in paperback form, but also download them directly to our Kindle! The selection includes the following books as well as so many more you can find when you head to Amazon to find those must have new holiday favorite stories:

·         Captain No Beard and the Aurora Borealis—A swashbuckling winter’s tale and the newest addition to the multi-award-winning Captain No Beard book series by Carole P.
