Horrible Harry and the Christmas Surprise
It’s Christmastime, but with Miss Mackle in the hospital, no one feels much like celebrating. Maybe Harry can think of a way to cheer up Miss Mackle and put the holiday spirit back in Room 2B.
If you’ve been reading this blog for any period of time, you know about my friendship with Horrible Harry. I love Horrible Harry and the Christmas Surprise because it shows a softer side of Harry.
Horrible Harry and the Holidaze
The holiday season is here, and the kids in Room 3B are learning about all the different ways people celebrate. In addition to Christmas and Hanukkah, there’s Kwanzaa, Three Kings’ Day, Korean New Year, and more. All the talk about holidays has everyone feeling festive. Everyone, that is, except Harry. He doesn’t seem to care about the holidays, the class pet, or even the new student in class. It’s clear that something is bugging Harry, but what could it be?
I love that this book briefly touches upon other holiday celebrations. This would be a great choice when learning about holidays and traditions from around the world.
Jingle Bells, Batman Smells (P.S. So Does May)
It’s holiday time, and Room One is doing lots of fun things to celebrate. Like making elf costumes! And singing joyful songs! Only, how can Junie B. enjoy the festivities when Tattletale May keeps ruining her holiday glee? And here is the worst part of all! When everyone picks names for Secret Santa, Junie B. gets stuck with Tattletale you-know-who! It’s enough to fizzle your holiday spirit! Hmm…or is it? Maybe, just maybe, a Secret Santa gift is the perfect opportunity to give May exactly what she deserves.
I love reading this book with my students who need a gentle reminder about kindness for all!

Flat Stanley: Stanley’s Christmas Adventure
I usually introduce my students to Flat Stanley when we begin writing to our pen pals. After that my students flock to the Flat Stanley tub in my classroom library. I keep this book close so I can read it aloud before the holidays.
Nate the Great and the Crunchy Christmas
Annie’s dog is unhappy. When Fang is unhappy, everyone is unhappy. Especially Nate the Great. So Nate agrees to sniff out Fang’s mysteriously missing Christmas mail. It’s cold and snowy. But Nate the Great and his dog, Sludge, will try to solve this holiday case in time for Fang to have a crunchy, munchy Christmas.
Bailey School Kids: Santa Claus Doesn’t Mop Floors
There have always been some pretty weird grown ups in Bailey City, but the new custodian at the Bailey School is one of a kind. When he appears out of nowhere just before Christmas to help out at the school, Mr. Jolly’s white hair and beard and longing for cold temperatures bring the fabled St. Nick to everyone’s mind. Could this man really be Santa Claus? The Bailey School Kids are going to find out!
Bailey School Kids: Elves Don’t Wear Hard Hats
When a group of short construction workers begins building a school playground, Lisa begins to suspect that they are really Christmas elves, but Melody and Howie think Lisa has an overactive imagination.
Bailey School Kids, Jr: Reindeer Do Wear Striped Underwear
The Bailey kids are at the zoo when they notice a reindeer pen and a man that looks an awful lot like Santa. Can the kids help Santa and his reindeer get underway and save Christmas?
