An administrator called last week looking for a new picture book to share with all the little ones who will be at her house this Christmas Eve. She was ready for something other than old favorites like The Polar Express and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. These are the titles (in no particular order) that MISD elementary librarians recommended.
