Teaching Traditions through Children's Holiday Books

At Wendell August Forge, we are dedicated to celebrating life's milestones, strengthening traditions and building memories. Our creation of hand-wrought works of art in metal, using methods rooted in centuries-old techniques, reflects our passion to honor our forebears and their accomplishments, while enriching the lives of everyone today.

One outstanding way to teach values and establish traditions in our children is through books and games. For that reason, we present a number of exceptional children's books, puzzles and card games which teach kids these concepts while entertaining them at the same time. Most of our books feature the writing talents of our local friend Leann Smith, and they are vibrantly illustrated by expert artists.

Christmas Picture Books your Child will Love

One of this year's most popular books is Santa's Magic Key. A delightful story with charming pictures, Santa's Magic Key introduces a new family tradition involving a handcrafted pewter key, included with the book. The magic key is to be placed on the front door of a child's house, to ensure that Santa comes with his special delivery of toys. The next morning, the key is found on the Christmas tree, proof that Santa succeeded in his mission of giving.

Parents, grandparents and other family members can join in the fun of this tradition, enjoying the wonder and excitement about Christmas that it instills in youngsters. It fosters children's imaginations and a love for the holidays that can last their whole lives.

Another classic favorite is 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, Clement C. Moore's enchanting poem, illustrated by award-winning artist Tom Browning. This abiding tale captures all the magical and marvelous details of Christmas Eve night. The poem is practically a tradition in itself, and one that no child should miss.

Card and Puzzle Stocking Stuffers

Children love games, and what better way to challenge and amuse them than our imaginative Christmas-themed card games? Choose from festive favorites such as Magic Key Six PixCards (both a game and a puzzle), Santa Says Cards and Snow Match Cards. These simple games make great stocking stuffers, and they are excellent ways for young children to pass time, perhaps with their young cousins and friends visiting over the holidays. Best of all, none involve staring at a digital screen!
