‘Tis the season for holiday reading!

Every day is like Christmas at the Horn Book, and in the fall, our sleigh’s worth of packages always includes plenty of holiday books. We review our new favorites for a range of ages in “Holiday High Notes,” a special feature in each November/December issue of The Horn Book Magazine. (See our 2017 picks — mostly Christmas-centric with a handful of Hanukkah-themed books — here.) This year, we’re excited to kick off a new tradition by giving each individual book a chance to shine via social media. From now until New Year’s, we’ll be celebrating #25DaysofHolidayBooks. So take a break from trimming trees, frying latkes, or wrapping gifts, and follow us on Twitter (@hornbook) and Instagram (@thehornbook) for a dose of holiday cheer every weekday!

Happy holidays from The Horn Book, Inc.!
