Christmas Books for Young Readers ⇉ Mini Reviews of Danny and the Dinosaur: A Very Dino Christmas & Bear's Merry Book of Hidden Things

Tuesday, December 12, 2017
Christmastime is special because of the opportunity to share books you love with young readers in the family. Today, I'm sharing my two favorite Christmas books for children that I received for review this year.




Celebrate Christmas dino-style with Danny the Dinosaur!

Danny’s friend the dinosaur has never experienced Christmas before, so he and Danny decide to celebrate—dino-style! But what will happen when the museum director isn’t so happy with the new museum decorations?

Find out in this Danny and the Dinosaur 8x8 adventure, complete with 8 holiday cards, a poster, and stickers. This brand-new story is based on Syd Hoff’s beloved classic.


The Dinosaur has never experienced Christmas before, so Danny sets off to introduce his friend to Christmas. And to decorate the museum for him. Through the friends' adventures (and some mishaps when they're discovered), Danny and the Dinosaur: A Very Dino Christmas introduces Christmas traditions and the joyful spirit of the holidays to young readers. I can picture an older reader reading this book with a young reader and making connections between the book and their own Christmas traditions.

★★★★☆

          Bear loves the holidays, and this year he's throwing a party for all his animal friends. But there's so much to do to get ready—and he is only one very little bear! Can you help Bear find all the secret treasures he needs for his party?


          I love how this book both tells a story and invites readers to participate by helping bear find the treasures he needs for his party. To top it off, the last party brings all of the treasures together, which makes for an enjoyable endgame of trying to find where everything goes! I can see this book being a fun adventure for the family to do together as members compete to see who can find bear's treasures first.

          ★★★★☆
