Holiday books and music


Since becoming a parent, I’ve managed to accumulate a decent collection of holiday books. As happens with things like books and toys, some I sought out, and others were given to us. Here are a few of our favorites:

I grew up exposed to Christmas music, and being an NYC native, also learned Hanukkah songs in school (yep!). Last year, for the first time, I looked for inclusive holiday music since in my immediate family alone, there are people who celebrate Christmas, Solstice, and Hanukkah. The folksy album Sing The Cold Winter Away by Kathy Reid-Naiman fits the bill nicely. It’s my preschooler’s favorite and includes a few fingerplays and rhymes for the season, too. Do you have any favorite holiday books or music?
