A Book for Every Holiday

Okay, well maybe not every holiday! But as the season of celebrations approaches, MMS Librarian Ms. Mbaye has curated a list of books (skewed toward younger readers) about various holidays. If your child is curious about the holiday they celebrate–or perhaps one they’ve heard about–you can check out any of these books at the MMS library. If you’d like more suggestions or if you have suggestions on books we should add to our library, feel free to reach out to Ms. Mbaye (ambaye@mmsny.org).
