New to my favorites list in 2011:
The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey by Susan Wojciechowski (illustrated by P.J. Lynch) I've heard people rave about this book for years, and I appreciated the message that kindness, hard work, beautiful things, family memories, and the story of Christmas can go along way toward healing a hurting heart.
Gladys Hunt, who wrote the book Honey for a Child's Heart about children's literature, has a blog post called Christmas Stories, which has a longer list of her favorites at the end of it. Check it out!
