Best Children’s Hanukkah and Christmas Books: Holiday Books for Children of Interfaith Families

Updated: Apr 17, 2018

Newest Holiday Book for Children Interfaith Families

Mr. Shipman’s Kindergarten Chronicles: December Celebrations

by Terance Shipman (Author) Age Range: 5 – 12 years

📷📷The first book on our list of holiday books for children of interfaith families is the latest to be released. It was published barely two months ago in October 2017. First-time author Terance Shipman recreates the excitement, magic, and beauty of a December celebration in a kindergarten classroom. He masterfully builds up the anticipation while deftly weaving entertaining stories about the different cultural traditions that are celebrated during December. Of course, these include Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. This comes as no surprise, as Shipman is a 23-year veteran teacher. He spent his first eleven years teaching kindergarten, the rest with elementary-aged students.

Mr. Shipman’s Kindergarten Chronicles: December Celebrations is based on the real-life experiences Shipman had in his classroom. Today, he remains in contact with many of the students he taught in kindergarten. The children’s book is about the relationship he builds with his students and their parents and all the fun they have during the December holidays.
