It is time to share books about holidays around the world, create holiday activities and prepare for a well-deserved Winter break for teachers and students as well. I can't wait for colder weather, hot chocolate, movie nights and curling up with warm blankets.
A teacher asked if I knew where to find holiday books in Spanish for her class. So I went on a hunt for the perfect picture books for December for your bilingual classroom. You know, those books about gingerbread men, Christmas trees, and reindeers. I had specific criteria.
- They must be in Spanish or English/Spanish.
- They must be engaging.
- They must have different themes (different holidays)
- They must be below $15
