This is another emotion-filled read from Colleen Hoover. I have read all of Hoover's books and find that she has a way of making each story feel unique.

Tis the season for shopping, decorating and baking. Your kids are looking forward to their winter break and you’re scrambling to get everything done before then.

Both projects are from Holiday Crafting & Baking with Kids by Jessica Strand.
