Staff Reading Picks
Book: Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner
Recommended by: Natalie, Technical Assistant
A fun read that offers an explanation for why snowmen look different the day after you make them: they play at night! Each page is beautifully illustrated, and has a look-and-find aspect. Can you find the dinosaur on every page?
Book: The Christmas Chronicles: The Legend of Santa Claus by Tim Slover
Recommended by: Debbie, Associate Librarian
This is a fun, imaginative version of how Santa became Santa, starting with the orphan, Klaus, who was taken in by a guild of craftsmen in 1343. After the Black Death had swept through the land, he made toys for all the surviving children in his village and delivered them, with the priest's blessing, on Christmas Eve to put some joy back into their lives. Those children told the children from other villages, and Klaus, not wanting to disappoint any of them, found himself with more deliveries to make than he could do in one night. Enter his (soon to be) wife, Anna, and her reindeer, Dasher. (The magic and the flying come in later.)
