Ditto Kids Books We Love: Seasonal Holidays

Here at Ditto Kids, we are big believers in the power of stories. Stories hold power to take us to places we've never been, to show us lives and paths we've never walked. Stories also can bring comfort and cheer and show us that we belong. That is why we firmly believe that stories can transform how we think, how we learn, and how we see the world around us.

So in that vein, we're rounded up some of our favorite seasonal stories because often, seeing others celebrating can teach us so much about how we celebrate. What we celebrate and how we can all work together to create a world we can all celebrate.

We broke our favorite stories down by occasion. Still, We would recommend sharing books from each occasion with your child whether you personally celebrate it or not because it's a great way to introduce children to other perspectives. Inclusion is work that starts at childhood, and often children's books are the first exposure a child gets to cultures, worlds, and traditions that reflect their story or stories of others like them. Children's books also can be the first line in pushing back against the biased stereotypes and assumptions about other cultures that our society perpetuates. Even in stories about seasonal celebrations, we can find authors and stories who honor and celebrate diversity, uniqueness, and acceptance.

We hope you love these picks and that they will bring you love and cheer throughout this season.
