The end of the year brings no greater joy than the opportunity to express season’s greetings and good wishes! With the holidays around the corner,  winter break offers a great opportunity to spend extra time with your kids reading amazing books. Whether you are shopping for a gift, or cozying upon the couch, check out our Holiday Book Collection. We believe high-quality books are an integral part of early literacy education. Offering children a balance of fiction and nonfiction reading experiences can provide not only gorgeous illustrations and compelling text, but also an opportunity to learn!
