Berlioz The Bear

Christmas Trolls

Christmas Trolls is a glorious celebration of the season as Treva confronts two irresistible trolls who don't understand Christmas.

Comet's Nine Lives

Beautiful island scenes: sandy beaches, hillside flower gardens, seaside trails, villages, and the sea itself are set within exquisite shell borders.

Mitten, The
Grade Levels: Pre-K, Primary, Intermediate
When Nicki drops his white mitten in the snow, he keeps going without realizing that it's missing.
One by one, woodland animals find the mitten and crawl in; first a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others, each one larger than the last. Finally, a big brown bear is followed in by a tiny brown mouse, and what happens next makes a wonderfully funny climax.

Night Before Christmas, The

Twelve Days Of Christmas, The
Grade Levels: Pre-K, Primary, Intermediate
For many centuries young and old alike have been singing about the maids a-milking, the lords a-leaping, and a partridge in a pear tree. A Christmas carol, a parlor game, and a delightful counting song – The Twelve Days of Christmas – is indeed a favorite of the holiday season.

Wild Christmas Reindeer, The

Grade Levels: Pre-K, Primary, Intermediate
Little Teeka thought she had to be firm with the reindeer to get them ready for Santa's important flight, but when her bossy yelling only got their antlers tangled up, she knew she had to try something different.
