Santa is Coming to Calgary
By Steve Smallman, Robert Dunn

17683831This is a really unique book because it takes your hometown, in this case Calgary, and takes Santa through a bunch of neighborhoods that are well known. It might even mention your own community! The illustrations are of Calgary and it is such a special book. The best part is that there are lots of books based on states and cities across North America, so there is sure to be a book for you and your family! Find your book here.

The Jolly Christmas Postman
By Janet Ahlberg

402026 I found this book in a local bookstore this week and was SO excited! I used to read this book when I was a kid, and it brought back so many fond memories. The book is about a postman who delivers letters to favorite nursery rhyme characters. The best part is that you can actually go into the envelopes he delivers and look at what everyone got for Christmas! I really love this book!
