If you are still looking for a quality Christmas book for your children (or a child in your life), we heartily recommend The Legend of Mistletoe and The Christmas Kittens by Joe Troiano.
Mistletoe (an adorable green, white, and red striped cat) was born on Christmas day, but since he was very different, the other kittens would have nothing to do with him. So, poor Mistletoe gives up hope of having a home. He finds three lost kittens and cares for them. Santa notices his kindness and give him a surprise gift.
Since I’m Jewish, I gave this book to two families I know. Both families ( one with a 3 year old,) and (one with a 6 year old, 10 year old and 13 year old) all heartily enjoyed this book. They were able to get the general message of accepting and embracing diversity.
Disclosure: We received two copies of this softcover and two plush toys, which we have given to friends to help facilitate this review.
