December Kids

BOOKHAMPTON

BookHampton’s second holiday season is well underway and we have lots of wonderful picks for your younger ones — books as well as an enticing variety of gifts and toys.

One special picture book that must be mentioned is ROBINSON, a beautifully illustrated story that celebrates the imagination and follows a little boy’s own version of the adventure of Robinson Crusoe. A new book by a multi award-winner author is always a treat.


Holiday Books for Little Ones

THE LITTLE REINDEER

Written and Illustrated by Nicola Killen

Follow a young girl and her friendship with a lost reindeer—a magical story in black and white and red.

 

 

LITTLE RED RUTHIE: A HANUKKAH TALE

by Gloria Koster and Sue Eastland

As Ruthie skips through the forest to her grandma’s house to make latkes, she encounters a hungry wolf. This is a charming twist on the Little Red Riding Hood story, very sweet and savory, too!

 

THE STEADFAST TIN SOLDIER

by Tor Seidler and Fred Marcellino

This beloved Hans Christian Anderson tale of the love story between a paper ballerina and a tin soldier comes to stunning life. This is a charming retelling of a classic by this celebrated writer and author duo.

What would Christmas be without the unforgettable Grinch?

New this year is a large format HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS: GROW YOUR HEART.
