book recommendations

Can anyone recommend books about the holidays for young kids? My son's school is inviting parents to read a book about the holiday the family celebrates, but the only thing I can think of is "The Grinch Stole Christmas!" What about books about Hanukkah or Kwanzaa?

My all time favorite holiday book is "The Night Tree" by Eve Bunting. It actually prompted a tradition in our house when my kids were younger. I love how un-commercial it is! For Hanukkah books our fav was "The Trees of the Dancing Goats" by Patricia Polacco (great author in general). For Kwanzaa, "Seven Days Of Kwanzaa" by Angela Shelf Medearis is a great one! Would love to hear other community member's favs for this season!
