Sharon Bonesteel Mann's tales embrace Christmas, Eid al-Fitr, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Thanksgiving.

With Balthazar Badger and Melchior Squirrel, Jasper learns a few lessons about sharing and the true meaning of the Christmas Season. MacCabee's Lighthouse: After thieves steal the fuel, Ruth must help her mother keep the lighthouse lit until her father returns home from fishing on the Outer Banks.

When Dad brings his vessel home safely it is truly a Happy Hanukkah!

The King's Birthday: All the presents in the world are not as satisfying as a HUG! Kwanzaa Cat: Working hard at the Humane Society's Cat Café, Nia and her brother Imani hope to adopt a Cat. Guided by the principles of Kwanzaa they present their case in a family meeting (and share in some great cat-adoption lessons, too).
