Book Sharing Monday :: Richard Scarry's Best Christmas Book Ever! & The Shortest Day: Celebrating the Winter Solstice

Two books today to share with you! The first one, Richard Scarry's Best Christmas Book Ever! I requested this one from our local library after reading the book sharing post at Rockhound Place. I remember having a few Richard Scarry book when I was growing up. This book is filled with fun short stories. There is also a game you can play, two songs and one activity.  

The second book, The Shortest Day: Celebrating the Winter Solstice by Wendy Pfeffer. I actually shared this book last year here. It is a favourite! The Shortest Day explains what winter solstice is and the traditions over time that people followed for this occasion. The book also explains it from a science point of view, and gives activities to do.

If you would like to share your current favourite children books, please include your link to your post below. Happy Reading!


  1. Great reminder on Solstice books - I think we'll run to the library and look for some! :)

  2. we are really loving Richard Scarry at the moment!


I ♥ comments! Thank you for stopping by.
