What could be better than a Christmas-time scavenger hunt in New York City? When Lily's parents leave her and her brother alone for Christmas, she is devastated, and in an effort to cheer her up, her brother encourages her to leave a journal in a book at the Strand, prompting a back and forth scavenger hunt around the city. When Dash, with a Scrooge-like attitude toward Christmas, picks up the journal, it sets off a series of adventures all over the city that makes me laugh and warms my heart every time. I read this one every year, and I promise it will make you Christmas season brighter.

Like being at a good British friend's home - one who tells fascinating, sometimes spooky stories. In between there's talk of her recipes and family. It's not always specifically about Christmas, but you feel you are making your way through the season fortified by her rich tales and food.

This is an American holiday classic I read every Christmas, and one my husband enjoyed it so much he recommended it to his friends. It's a little story with big heart and completely unlike most of Capote's works. This special edition includes an audio CD narrated by Academy Award winning Celeste Holm.

You are brought along on every Christmas joy--along with some of the anxiety, anticipation, and excitement--with this seemingly simple repetition. Each page appears to stand on its own, but look closely and you'll be able  to discern backstory and visual narrative from the fuzzy, soft, expressive illustrations that accompany. My new Christmas favorite.
