Starting in November
These must be Christmas novels, books about Christmas lore, a book of Christmas short stories or poems, books about Christmas crafts, and for the first time…a children’s Christmas books level! Levels:

- Christmas Tree: read 5 or 6 books (this is the fanatic level…LOL!)
- Fa La La La Films: watch a bunch or a few Christmas movies…it’s up to you!
- Visions of Sugar Plums: read books with your children this season and share what you read
