Holiday Reading Suggestions

Katherine Paterson shares her recommendations for Christmas stories.

NCBLA board member Katherine Paterson, author of Bridge to Terabithia, Jacob Have I Loved, and The Great Gilly Hopkins, writes:
Two magical books from my own childhood Christmases which may, or may not still be in print, are: A Tree for Peter, written and illustrated by Kate Seredy and Maud and Miska Petersham's glowing illustration of the Christmas story, The Christ Child. Two more recent books I love are: The Nativity, which is the Gospel accounts illustrated by Julie Vivas (with a really pregnant Mary being hoisted onto the donkey by Joseph and a bare-naked baby Jesus) and N. Scott Momaday's Native American Christmas Story, Circle of Wonder.
