Great Book Ideas for Christmas

New Christmas books from Albert Whitman and Company.

What Am I? Christmas   
Anne Margaret Lewis

Illustrated by Tom Mills

For young children, a lift-the-flap look at what makes Christmas special. From Santa to a Christmas tree, this is a sure hit for little ones as they guess "What Am I?" and lift the flap to find out!


"...the structure is remarkably well thought out for the youngest children, who will find the clues-prediction-answer concept an amusing challenge."--Kirkus Reviews

"Youngsters will enjoy giving the answers and participating in the refrain."--School Library Journal

"The illustrations are brightly colored graphics that have a warm, holiday, even giftlike appeal."--Booklist

The Christmas Pups

Teresa Bateman

Illustrated by John Kanzler

On an icy, December night, three puppies are rescued from the side of the road and taken to an animal shelter. Ruff and Tuff have a plan to ensure that their sister, Penny, finds a home for Christmas, even if they can't. But with the help of an older dog named Brownie, the puppies learn the true meaning of Christmas...and find a home for all four of them just in time.

Here are some fun books to grab for those last minute gifts for kids. Santa, if you are listening, books make great stocking stuffers.
