Holiday Picture Books: Thanksgiving through Día de Los Reyes
That whirlwind that is the holiday season is almost upon us!
While the holidays can be stressful, there is one part I really enjoy: displaying our holiday picture books and discovering new ones!
I always think about how books can serve as both mirrors and windows for the little ones in our lives.
We use books as mirrors when we share our family's holiday traditions -- like watching the Macy's Parade, singing aguinaldos, or waiting for gifts from Los Tres Reyes Magos.
We use books as windows when we read together about how other families celebrate during this time of the year.
Holiday books also make great GIFTS! So if you're not sure what to get for your favorite kids this season, consider adding to their holiday book collections.
To get you started, I've included some of our family's favorite books (and a music album) below!
Don't forget to share some of your family's favorites in the comments.

We survived election night!
Despite some heartbreaks, the wave of women -- including amazing women of color -- heading to congress leaves me hopeful for some much needed change.
Let’s keep up the pressure on our elected officials, so that they work to protect the most vulnerable communities while striving to improve our country for us all.
Ok, now that that's off my chest... anyone else bracing for the upcoming "wave" that is the holidays?
If you're anything like me, you are at once excited and anxious as the holidays approach.
I’m right there with you.
Read on to learn about some ways I use Thanks & Giving to help usher in Las Navidades on the right note.
