Looking for good seasonal children's books...

Hello all!

I really don't post on the forum here much, but I think maybe some of you could help me.

I have a 4 year old boy and I am looking for "Christmas " books. I want seasonal books that would be great for kids, but with pagan or druid themes.

Are there any links out there? Any suggestions?

I am living in Tokyo, so visiting the local pagan book store is out of the question at this time...

I appreciate the help!

Hugs all around!

I'm curious what people come up with! We have three kids and are planning on celebrating our first Yule instead of Christmas this year. Any suggestions?

I realise this is a slightly older thread but thought I could offer some ideas :)

I assume tokyo has waldorf schools since they appear to be absolutely everywhere so that might be a great start. If not myriad toys would be a good place to see books that are generally in a more natural setting though some can have Christian themes.
I am linking myriad only because the books are all together easily they should be available from amazon etc too :) ... beskow.php Elsa beskow is fairytalish and very lovely imo she has lots of seasonal stories without any religious slant to it ... ildren.php Stories of books are again very lovely they feature mini people that represent certain aspects of nature (ie flower fairies mother nature king winter etc) wonderful books that are low on pictures. All heavy on nature lots of nature apreciation. Main character is Tip toes a fairy who has 2 gnome friends and was born from the sun and the wind.

I realise they are not druid stories but all are so nature based I find them very suitable
