When my now college age boys were younger, every Christmas season, I would buy a new picture book. If you are doing the same, the one I would add to your collection this year is “Red and Lulu” by Matt Tavares. It’s a story told both in words and beautiful illustrations. Red and Lulu are cardinals and best friends. When they become separated, it will take love, determination and the magic of the Christmas season to help them find each other again. Not to be missed, especially if you take your kids to see the Rockefeller Christmas tree!
