This timely, gentle holiday book acknowledges that Christmas 2020 may look different from family celebrations in previous years, but assures readers they can still have a fun, cozy time. With simple language and appealing cartoon-style art, the warm message comes through that family is important, as is community and caring for your neighbors, and that even if you can only see a loved one on a screen, you can still share the love and holiday cheer. There are also some worthy suggestions for new holiday traditions to keep you in the spirit. This year will definitely be different for many people, and Always Together at Christmas can help kids picture what will be new and what will stay the same.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
