Are you ready for some cozy reading for yourself, or looking for something seasonal for the kids in your life? This list is a mix of Christmas, Yule, and just snowy adventures. (I was unable to find any middle grade Hanukkah books, whether fantasy or realistic, so I guess I’ll be sticking with recommending Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins to those looking for Hanukkah magic.)
Most of them are available for download from public libraries through either Hoopla or Libby, and hopefully you’re able to request them from your library in print as well if that’s your preference. As usual, links are to my full reviews.
