    Hi everyone. Could you help me? I am long term subbing for a third grade class and I was looking for some holiday chapter books to read aloud to the kids. I am open to any ideas! Thanks a lot!

    I personally like reading "Minnie and Moo" books for specific holidays...though these may be a little light for 3rd graders.

    Minnie and Moo and the Thanksgiving Tree
    Minnie and Moo: The Night Before Christmas

    When I taught 2nd grade, the students loved the Bailey School Kids series. I read one aloud to them & then the school librarian told me that for the rest of the year, my class always had these books checked out. Most of the books are holiday themed & there are quite a lot of Christmas ones. The titles go somewhat like this (but I'm making this one up)...Santa Claus Doesn't Bake Cookies" & "Elves Don't Build Snowmen".....that's the type of titles.

    The Best Christmas Pageant ever is always a favorite! You could also read Charlotte's Web (the new movie w/ Dakota Fanning is coming out Dec. 20)

    But make sure they all celebrate Christmas before reading a Christmas story.

    I love to read a classic that they probably won't pick up on their own, like The House Without a Christmas Tree.[/I]
