    “Daddy, can I dress like Spiderman for Trick-or-Treat Night?”  “Mommy, how come we always have turkey and pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving?”

    These types of questions arise as we go throughout a calendar year.  It seems we are always celebrating some holiday!  And why not?  Holidays are fun and they add excitement to our lives.

    I can think of many positive reasons for using books surrounding the seasons and holidays:

Holiday books can be like a special treat for children as the stories bring a break from the norm.
Puzzles, activity sheets, and crafts based on a seasonal book are fun and aid the children in their comprehension of the book.
Holiday books with a religious theme can be a starting point for discussion with children about that religious viewpoint.
Holiday books can also serve as a starting point for discussion with the children about family traditions.
Holiday books can help kids to understand the history and meaning behind a holiday.
Children usually enjoy reading and re-reading seasonal books as they are only read a few weeks a year, then stored away until next season.
Older kids usually enjoy reading favorite seasonal books to younger siblings as the stories jog pleasant memories of years past.  Reading favorite seasonal books together as a family could become part of your family’s traditions.

So, are there cautions about using seasonal/holiday books?

My only caution would be to be diligent in browsing through the book first.  (You
might want to reread my May 5, 2014 Blog entitled “When To Review a Book Before Reading It With Your Child) 

    For example, does the book promote positive values?  Is your child mature enough to handle the content in a book based on historical events?  I recall when I bought a Halloween book where the cover stated it was a comical story about a ghost in a cemetery.  I found myself discussing the reality of ghosts or not with my young one.

    Reviewing, have fun with the seasonal/holiday books, but be cautious of the content!

    Hope you have a fantastic Fall.  Come back the first week in November to read the next Blog, “Fantasy vs. Real-life Stories.”

    God bless, keep the comments coming.

Thanks Linda for sharing your thoughts and you said exactly right that will be good for our kids. I think so that seasonal and holiday book is good for the kids than any other things and that's why I am encouraging you to publish more like this. Good work:)
