Deck the Halls with Books

Bookshare has a sleigh full of books for the holidays

Ho-ho-holidays can be busy and hectic, but they often provide some down time to pursue fun pastimes like reading. To help get you in the mood, we’ve created some holiday Reading Lists for children, teens and adults. We encourage you to download some of your favorites for those road trips to grandma’s house, snow days, cozy bedtime reading, or any time and place you want to jump into a good book.

Holiday Stories for Kids

‘Tis the season to enjoy the December holidays! Whether your family celebrates Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or something else, these children’s books illustrate the stories at the heart of many holiday traditions. For ages 3-12.

Welcome to the YA (Young Adult) Winter Wonderland

This winter, teens can snuggle up with these snowy, icy, frosty young adult books. The books are set during winter or in a snowy locale and feature stories about Project Scrooge, a futuristic frozen world, getting snowed in, rivals in a fantasy kingdom, survival in 1941 Ukraine, and the latest adventures of Dash & Lily.

Winter Holiday Reads for Adults

Adults will enjoy this eclectic holiday collection of fiction and nonfiction books spanning various countries, faiths, and winter landscapes. Explore books about the true Saint Nicholas, the legend of the Krampus, Hanukkah stories, holiday recipes, snowmen, a Christmas murder mystery, and even a holiday version of Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Subscribe, Copy, and Create New Reading Lists

With the Reading List feature, members and sponsors can create custom lists of titles and organize them by class, student, topic, or interest. Teachers can subscribe to existing lists, such as these newly created holiday lists, and assign them to students so they can download titles independently. Go to the Bookshare Help Center to learn more about how to subscribe, share, create, and assign Reading Lists.

So, make your book list, check it twice, and dive into some inspiring holiday reading.
