Not to long ago I mentioned in a Book Talk and eBook Talk about not liking to read holiday set romances and I also mentioned not understanding why, when I loved the picture book side of the holidays.
Milly and The Macy's Day Parade by Shana Corey and illustrated by Brett Helquist. You might recognize his work from the Lemony Snicket Series of Unfortunate Events series and Blue Balliett's fantastic YA mysteries, but this is where I first discovered him and bought A Christmas Carol edition he illustrated and The Lump of Coal treat of a book - love his work!
A Story for Bear by Dennis Haseley and illustrated by Jim LaMarche may not be Thanksgiving specific, but with us having to deal with leaves falling, it's a perfect book to read, especially to others. And on a personal note, it also is one we tend to get for family and friends who have a baby. That's right new borns are given a couple books to get their libraries started and for the parents to start reading to them. Very important.
Just love books!
