imageAll of my children love to read, I find my oldest daughter’s reading for fun all the time and the babies love when mommy and daddy read them their favorite stores (over and over and over).  I have to admit that I really love that they enjoy reading so much…it makes all of the time I spent reading to them when they were babies worth it!


I was recently given the opportunity to review two of the books from the Scholastic Holiday collection; Captain Sky Blue and It’s Christmas David.  Lil Man and Lil Diva were very excited for me to read the books to them.  They both really enjoyed It’s Christmas David and it has become one of the books they request most often.  Both books make great additions to your home library and they are a nice change from the more traditional holiday stories.
