I received a copy of Baby Santa and We Got the Water in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
I am a big reader. I love to escape in a great book. I usually have 3 or 4 books going at one time. My life is so stressful, so having the down time to sit and read is very important to me. I helps keep my stress level at a manageable level. I also want my children to enjoy reading as much as I do. This year, we’ve decided to limit the amount of gifts we are getting our children for Christmas and provide them with something they want, something they need, something they wear and something they read. I think I’m most excited about picking out the perfect books for all ages of my children.
Here are some book ideas for the book lovers in your life. With the holidays around the corner, if we haven’t started shopping yet, we are already behind schedule!

KRIS KRINGLE’S KID’S BOOK
Meet the youngest and most rambunctious member of the Claus family – Baby Santa! In the first installment of this fun and festive children’s series, Dr. Maitland DeLand introduces young readers to the adorable Baby Santa, who helps dear old dad – Santa Claus – save Christmas. Baby Santa illustrates what parents and kids can accomplish when they work together.
My girls loved that Santa and Mrs. Claus had a baby. It just delighted them. The pictures are very colorful and my girls loved who got to help save Christmas!
FASCINATING FIND FOR THE FAMILY HISTORIAN
In We Got the Water: Tracing My Family’s Path Through Auschwitz, author and social psychologist Dr. Jill Klein tells the remarkable story of how four members of her family – her father Gene, his two sisters, and their mother – survived the Holocaust. In unique “recollection” chapters, Dr. Klein describes the arduous process of reconstructing her family’s story.
I’ve read many books about people’s experiences during the Holocaust, each one makes my heart ache. We Got the Water is an inspiring story of survival during a horrific time, and a must read for history buffs.
