• How to Catch an Elf

    By Adam Wallace

    Ill. by Andy Elkerton

    Read by Kirby Heyborne

    A fun holiday follow-up from the New York Times best-selling creators of How to Catch a Leprechaun!

    "With delightful rhymes, How to Catch an Elf slots itself into place along such classics as 'The Night Before Christmas.' Of course, there's some updated technology, such as the Elf Snatcher 3000. Its cute language is great for reading aloud and the pictures are sure to get a giggle. Daring escapes and goofy traps make the story great fun. With hijinks galore, kids may just come up with some new ways to capture Santa's little helper." - Foreword Reviews

  • Click, Clack, Ho! Ho! Ho!

    By Doreen Cronin

    Ill. by Betsy Lewin

    Read by Maurice England

    The night before Christmas and all through the farm, not a creature is stirring, not even a...duck?

    "This is a Christmas story that has it all: beloved characters, physical humor, and an original idea, as well as a short, funny text that effectively uses repeated phrases. Lewin's loose watercolor illustrations with bold outlines are cozy in the interior scenes and magical in the outdoor settings, with midnight blue skies, dots of white snow, and a hazy full moon that shows off Santa and his reindeer. An endearing story that will appeal to a wide age range, including preschoolers, new readers, and older kids who love the Click Clack crowd." - Kirkus Review (Starred Review)

    By Gail Gibbons

    Ill. by Gail Gibbons

    An excellent children's book that encompasses all things Christmas.

    "In simple, evocative text, the author briefly retells the Christmas story, then goes on to discuss other symbols of the holiday season...soft, bright watercolor illustrations are scanned and occasionally animate a traditional Northern Hemisphere setting with deep snow, bright evergreens, and warm smiles." - School Library Journal (Video Review)

    Read by Peter H. Reynolds

    Young Roland learns that more isn't always better - and rediscovers the magic of home.
