Is there anything cozier than cuddling up for story time during the holidays? Books make a great gift for any age, and wintertime holidays are the perfect opportunity for sharing stories with little ones. Books can be cherished Hanukkah gifts, fun Christmas stocking stuffers, an inspiring New Year’s present—or you can plan an entire holiday around books, just like Jolabokaflod in Iceland!

Have a reluctant reader (or a toddler who’s simply reluctant to sit still)? Try interactive books with touch-and-feel or search-and-find elements to keep them engaged.

If you’re shopping for a kiddo who lives far away, you can still do story time even thousands of miles apart! Reading a story over video chat is a great way to connect with loved ones no matter how far apart you are—you can even get two copies of a book (one for them, one for you) and flip through the pages together.

No matter what winter holiday(s) your family celebrates, you’ll be able to find books for every occasion and every reader. Here are some of our favorites.
