Now that Thanksgiving is over I can officially untangle my strands of Christmas lights and blare endless carols from my speakers. And, of, course, get cozy with my family and my books.
For Your YA Elves:
This is the perfect twist on A Christmas Carol. I can't wait to use excerpts in my 8 grade classroom!

I spied this book at NCTE and immediately added it to my Amazon cart.
A reindeer-loving little girl ventures out to help a reindeer in need. Told in mostly black and white illustrations, with little pops of color, this has become a favorite book in my house.
