Pete the Cat Saves Christmas by Eric Litwin.  One December, Santa catches a cold.  But does he worry?  NO.  He calls Pete the Cat, who rolls in with his groovy style.  It’s all good.

Pete the Cat has many picture books out, and most of them can be sung to music.  This one rocks to the tune of Feliz Navidad.

6406709Gingerbread Pirates by Kristin Kladstrup. When a crew of cookie pirates hear of a Santa Clause who’s going to eat them up, they make plans to fight back!  But jolly old St. Nick isn’t offended.  Instead he sprinkles some Christmas magic to transform them into an awesome, and inedible surprise!

8553041Li’l Rabbit’s Kwanzaa by Donna Washington.  Li’l Rabbit’s grandma is sick, maybe too sick to celebrate the ending feast of Karamu.  So he tries to find a way to bring the celebration to her.  Along the way, he begins to doubt his task, which maybe too much for one boy rabbit to do.  But with some unexpected help from his family and neighbors, Li’l Rabbit creates the perfect celebration, just right to share with his grandma.
