"Try to enjoy it because it is over in a flash. I learn so much from the children every year... the way they look at Christmas. Christmas through their eyes, there’s just no other beauty."
Getting Ready for the Holidays

The holiday season is here, so we invited preschool teacher Rebecca McNeil back to Completely Booked to help you get your family ready. We go over tips for handling holiday traditions and gift-giving with your children, fun activities you can do with your family over the break, and, of course, her top holiday book recommendations for the little ones. Listen to the podcast below:

 

Take a Breath

While so many people get caught up in their hectic holiday plans and financial stress from buying gifts, it's important to remember the most valuable thing you can give to your family and friends is time. There are so many memories to be made that will outlast any gift you give your child. So try to relax and enjoy the season! 

 

Holiday Books + Beyond

The library is a wonderful resource for books and movies to get your kids excited about the holidays without breaking the bank. Browse through our catalogue, explore some of our e-content like Hoopla and Kanopy, or stop by a local branch and ask a librarian for their top picks. Check out some of Rebecca McNeil's holiday book recommendations below:
