Looking for a Christmas story that hits all the right notes, but that your kid hasn’t heard yet? Grab a copy of Toot and Puddle I’ll Be Home for Christmas by Holly Hobbie.
This sweet story tells the tale of Puddle, who waits at home during the holiday season for his best buddy Toot. Toot has traveled far away to visit family, but promises to be back in time for the holiday to celebrate their traditions together. A massive snowstorm can’t stop Toot from returning home, with the help of a familiar face.
Instead of focusing on toys and gifts, this book highlights the joys of family, friends, and holiday traditions, and what it means to celebrate the most important things without all the fuss. If you love it enough, you can also grab the video of the same tale.
If you’ve read any of the other Toot and Puddle books, you’ll recognize the witty illustrations that contain even more humor and fun beyond the printed words. Kids and adults alike will enjoy this holiday tale about travel and reunion.
