Enter the Storybooks and Crafts (Holiday Reading) with Dover Publications Giveaway

(Thanks to Dover Books and the Children's Books review for sponsoring this post. Opinions are our own.)

People are always asking me "how do you do it?" Raising six kids hasn't been easy, and I'm not really sure how I give others the impression that I know what I'm doing, but one way I've managed is by keeping tons of really good kid lit titles at every level of my home -- in every room!

Classics are usually mixed in with some new books, and one way that I've found it affordable to keep copies around for everyone is by buying the classics from Dover. They make it really easy to have multiple copies on hand for homeschoolers and book enthusiasts. With the holidays coming up, it's the perfect time to stock up on those must-have reads that you want your kids to enjoy, too!

The Wedding Procession of the Rag Doll and the Broom Handle and Who Was in It

The Rag Doll was blessed with many friends — the Wisk Broom, the Furnace Shovel, and the Coffee Pot among them — but when it came time to marry, she chose the Broom Handle. On the day of their wedding, the bride and groom were attended by a fantastical procession of well-wishers: the Spoon Lickers, the Tin Pan Bangers, the Easy Ticklers, the Musical Soup Eaters, and other whimsical characters, all marching along in a manner befitting their extraordinary names.

Nine Days to Christmas: A Story of Mexico

Generations of readers have treasured this 1960 Caldecott Medal winner and its tale of a little Mexican girl’s excitement at the approach of Christmas. Ceci eagerly awaits Las Posadas, the traditional nine-day series of yuletide celebrations. This year she’ll lead the candlelight procession that reenacts Mary and Joseph’s trek to Bethlehem. Meanwhile, Mother takes her to the old marketplace to choose her very first piñata. Ceci is dazzled by the colorful array of options, and after making her choice has second thoughts about the fate of her piñata once the posada takes place. Graced by evocative illustrations, this international holiday classic is now available in a lovely hardcover edition. Available on Dover Publications
