Holiday Must-Reads!

Emily and I have collected a grand total of 300 cans so far. Hopefully we'll collect at least 200 more during the next two days. If so, then (if the other groups collected 500, too) we will have met our goal of 2000 cans. I can't wait to see how the people we're donating the cans to will react when we bring them all those delicious food items. Emily and I volunteered to go to the shelter with Mrs. Devon and pass out the cans.

Anyways, the holidays are fast approaching, and winter is nearly here. Emily and I thought it would be fun to give you a list of our top 5 favorite holiday books. Enjoy!
#5: Felicity's Surprise by Valerie Tripp
Felicity is invited to the governor's palace for a Christmas ball. Unfortunately, her mother is too ill to make her a gown. Will Felicity be able to go to the ball and wear a beautiful dress? Find out in Felicity's Surprise!

#4: Little House Christmas Treasury by Laura Ingalls Wilder
A collection of holiday stories from Laura and her family. All stories are actual excerpts from the original Little House on the Prairie book series.

#3: Kirsten's Surprise by Janet Shaw
Kirsten goes with her father to pick up her special trunk. She and her cousins also plan a Swedish surprise!

#2: Molly's Surprise by Valerie Tripp
Molly misses her father a lot. She thinks that this Christmas will be completely different with him away. She's right, but not entirely. A special surprise greets her on Christmas morning that is almost just as good.

#1: On Christmas Eve by Ann M. Martin
Tess really wants to meet Santa, so she decides to stay awake and see him for herself at the time of enchantment, midnight on Christmas Eve.

I hope these summaries gave you a good idea of what these fun, thrilling, and enchanted stories are about. Happy reading! :-)

  1. Ooh I've read a lot of those, good choices! I think that "On Christmas Eve" sounds really good! Kind of like the Polar Express? That's my favorite Christmas movie :)
