If you are into Christmas, here is a GREAT book for X-mas, and not just because I know the author. The Christmas Mink: and Other December Tales from the North Woods by John-Richard Thompson is a gem. If Christmas is not your thing, you may enjoy it anyway as there are stories for the more curmudgeonly among us.
Reading a story or poem aloud en famille every year either chokes me up or makes me laugh or both.
