Book Nook: New Christmas Titles from Zonderkidz

I had a chance to see some new Christmas releases from Zonderkidz that are great for gift-giving this holiday season.

A Very Fiona Christmas
This is a follow-up to Fiona the Hippo, based on the internet sensation from the Cincinnati Zoo. It's a fun, whimsical book for kids who love animals and zoos and great for kids. Although Zondervan is a Christian publishing company, this book focuses on the other non-material meanings of Christmas like family and love. It's a sweet story with a heartwarming message.

The Berenstain Bears Go Christmas Caroling
This is a typical Berenstain Bears book - warm and homey, with nuggets of wisdom from Ma and a very nice, peaceful story overall. It's a great book for families that like this timeless series.

A Christmas Gift for Santa
Santa spends his time delivering Christmas presents - but does he get one in return? This offers a different look at Santa, and makes him seem more accessible and intriguing. It's a cute book for families that participate in the Santa tradition - and it's even a fun book if your family doesn't really do Santa.

Merry Christmas, Nighty Night
Grammy winner Michael W. Smith wrote this adorable padded board book. It's reminiscent of the classic "The Night Before Christmas" and tells the story of the Nighty Nights and their friends Cole and Rose. Fans of Michael W. Smith will enjoy this book with its cute illustrations and pleasant story.

A Savior is Born, Rocks Tell the Story of Christmas
This book, created by Patti Rokus, is perfect for early readers. With short snippets of NKJV Bible verses that tell the story, rock art is used to illustrate the story. The rock art makes it unique, and the short phrases on each page make it easy for young readers to follow along.

I Can Read: The Beginner's Bible Jesus is Born
This retelling of the story of the nativity uses The Beginner's Bible style illustrations, simplified text, and easy words to make the perfect Christmas story for those just beginning to read.
