10 Books for Parents This Holiday Season

One of 10 great reads for the holidays

Beach reads get all the glory, but any parent with young kids will tell you: days at the beach spent on snack management and drowning prevention, not escaping with a good book.

The winter holidays, though. Now there’s a time to get some pages turned! Cooler temperatures bring everyone indoors to spend time with their favorite electronic babysitter. The kids are still excited about their new toys. Days are shorter and bedtimes can be earlier.

Which is why books are always on my holiday wishlist.

Babble has culled the volumes and come with with the 10 Best New Books for Parents — not a doctor or self-annointed expert is among the authors (save those for the beach this summer). The 10 books are fiction and non-fiction reads to escape parenting, not remind you of it.
